Mudskipper SwimRun Challenge – powered by Canaqua Sports
Since our first race in 2017 we have been adding races as we work to grow the sport that has taken the world by storm. Our series has grown from 2 races in Ontario in 2017 to 12 races in 2022, and we continue to look for new and exciting ways to grow the amazing sport of swimrun. With races across Canada from Vancouver B.C. to Sackville N.S. and many locations in between, and with distances ranging from 8.50 K to 20 K our races have something for everyone. So come on out and take on the Mudskipper SwimRun Challenge... you will be glad you did!
At Canaqua Sports, we are very excited about what we have accomplished. We understand that there is a long way to go as we work to bring SwimRun into the mainstream in Canadian Endurance Sports and we look forward to continuing to grow Swimrun across Canada and beyond.
