About Swimrun Labs
With surfing wetsuits, DIY pull buoys, and endless laughter…the journey began.
On a fateful day in 2016, Annie and Brooke signed up for their first swimrun race. Physical therapists by day with a penchant for wild human-powered adventures and backgrounds in adventure racing, ultra-running, and triathlon, they were eager to take on their next endurance challenge. The two cobbled together a makeshift race kit including an oversized surf wetsuit, heavily cushioned running shoes, and a last-minute DIY pull buoy setup. They raced with reckless enthusiasm, bright smiles, and fabulously ill-suited gear. Against all odds Annie and Brooke nabbed a win and their swimrun journey began.
Since that first race, Annie and Brooke have kept their bright smiles and applied their backgrounds in physical therapy, research, exercise physiology, and elite sport to all things swimrun. This unstoppable female team has competed to a national title in the sport, qualified for a spot at ÖTILLÖ World Championship 2020, and completely transformed their race kit and approach to training along the way.
Swimrun Labs was born from a drive to optimize systems for successful training and racing in the rapidly developing sport of swimrun, where athletes and gear must excel on land, water, and transition. There are no blueprints or training protocols, and innovation rules. Swimrun Labs is committed to doing the research, so that you can confidently push your edge, nurture your passion, and rule your own swimrun journey.
