Entry to ÖTILLÖ
The Swimrun World Championship


The registration process is made via merits or via a random selection ticket drawing. The teams selected are final and will not be discussed why they have been selected. The order the random selection tickets are bought will also be the order of an eventual waiting list. For merits the waiting list is based on merits.

Teams that Qualify via our Qualifiers are the first teams in each category where NO ONE in the team already has a spot. If the spot is not accepted within one (1) week it will roll down to the next team with the same criteria.

You cannot change class (men, women or mixed) after you have recieved a spot, you can change one team member. This applies if you have gotten your spot via a Qualifier, via merits or via Random Selection Tickets.

We are very grateful for the huge demand we have for ÖTILLÖ. We therefore, try to be as fair as possible in the entry process.
