Most beautiful place on the planet. I came here last year among COVID restrictions and many races canceled. They managed to make it happen. That was my 1st swimrun event. I took my triathlon wetsuit and did not take any pullbuoy as I thought neoprene would be enough (but the shoes are really making your legs sink…).
Anyhow last year I came in 16th in 1h56. I was overheating hard on the run as I could not open the wetsuit (long sleeves, long arms…). So this year I decided to do it properly with a Swimrun wetsuit, a huge ARK pull-buoy and that made a big difference! Despite very limited swim and run training in 2021 so far. Finished 2nd in 1h43 (would have made 3 in 2020. Good progress. Equipment rules!)
Beautiful course. I look forward to coming back in 2022!
