ÖTILLÖ Catalina Swimrun
February 29 - March 1
ÖTILLÖ Catalina Swimrun will be held on island just 21 nautical miles off the California coast with endless outdoor and Swimrun possibilities. A rugged island with a 650- meter vertical drop from the highest point to the sea. Lots of bays, pebbled beaches and crystal- clear waters abundant with fish.
In the early spring the island is green, the wild flowers are blooming and the contrasts are beautiful.
Catalina Island sounds far away but it is actually very accessible. From Los Angeles international airport it is a short car ride to Long Beach, one of the ferry ports, where you catch the ferry and within 90 minutes you are on the island. This means that you can arrive in Los Angeles early afternoon and be on the island in time for dinner. A new favorite place in the world.
If you have never been to Catalina, then the place itself is worth the trip. It is an Swimrun heaven, close to the mainland surrounded by the Pacific Ocean. The West Coast of the island is wild. Along the course you will meet many friends, especially the bright orange Garibaldi fish.
Catalina is where the buffalo roam free. Where the two beautiful little communities are enclosed and where nature is so much bigger than man.

For those planning to participate in the Saturday races (Sprint & Experience) in Two Harbors we will have a special ferry service from the Catalina Express Ferry Terminal in San Pedro in the morning of the race and returning in the afternoon of the race. To make sure you can be at all functions and participate in the races.
