SwimRun Event returns to the Côte Vermeille

24th June

Up for a challenge? We’ve got just the thing…

After its unprecedented success in 2016, on Saturday 24th June, Argelès-sur-Mer will once again host the SwimRun Event for the Côte Vermeille.

This relatively unfamiliar discipline pitches teams of 2 against one another in a race along our beautiful yet unforgiving coast line. At times swimming, at times running ; the athletes test their mettle across 4 possible distances, tackling the coastal coves of the Mediterranean and the rocky trails of the Albera Massif.

Four routes

  • La courte (short) : 12.8km from Collioure, covering 326 vertical meters*
  • La moyenne (medium) : 26.2km from Port-Vendres, covering 738 vertical meters
  • La longue (long) : 45.8km from Banyuls-sur-Mer, covering 1863 vertical meters.
  • L’ultra (crazy!) : 63.9km from Cerbère, covering nearly 2.5 vertical kilometers (2498m)
