The Swimrun Annual Awards is your chance to recognise the people and organisations who are making notable contributions to the success and growth of the sport.
This is our take on the oscars with an overall winner and highly commended awarded and we would be thrilled to get your opinions on which swimrun people, organisations and brands, have in your opinion had an impact. An expert panel of judges will also award ‘judges choice’ in each category.
How it all works
1. Public nominations for the awards will be open until the 24th November 2023.
2. A shortlist opens on the 1st December 2023 and popular voting commences.
3. Voting closes at midnight on the 31st December 2023.
