Who’s ready to dive in and find out more ?! Now for a bit of history!

Run started in Sweden in 2002 when two friends sat in a pub and decided to challenge themselves to swim-run a 75 km course across 26 islands.

Two teams of two started out the following day. The only rule was that they had to pass three different restaurants on the islands between the start and the finish. The last team at the restaurant had to drink and pay for what the team ahead of them had ordered for them.

It took them more than 24 hours, and they were too tired to party on arrival. They tried it again the next year and had the same results.

In 2006, the race became a commercial event. Over the years, only a few teams finished within the time frame. Eventually, they learned that racing without stopping would get participants through the event.

Today, the race is internationally recognized as the Swimrun World Championship and has been ranked as one of the most challenging races in the world.

Canaqua Sports brought the Swim-Run and adopted the name Mudskipper.

The Mudskipper Challenge boasts an impressive series throughout Canada and the US, making it one of the most prominent swim-run organizers worldwide by race location. Mudskipper races come in various distances, ranging from manageable 5 to extraordinary 100 kilometres and beyond, catering to participants of all fitness levels and aspirations.

Mudskipper racing is an exceptional opportunity to test your limits, embrace the thrill of competition, and revel in the camaraderie of fellow racers. It’s a sport that welcomes individuals of all ages and fitness levels, fostering a sense of accomplishment and joy. Don’t let this exhilarating opportunity pass you by
