The SwimRun NC at Hanging Rock is the concept of Jan Kriska and Jeff Beckelhimer, two passionate endurance athletes who reside very close to this stunning part of nature, and have spent countless times running or swimming there. They invited Herbert Krabel to join them as he shares that unique event passion. Kriska, Krabel and Beckelhimer have participated in endurance events all over the globe and Beckelhimer is also a smart and experienced race event director. Kriska, Krabel and Beckelhimer now want to bring other endurance folks to North Carolina to experience the magic of the Hanging Rock State Park and the adjacent Dan River.

On October 27th, 2019 you can enjoy the magic and challenge of about 16 miles of running and 3k of swimming broken up into 11 runs and 9 swims, plus a lot of elevation gain for some added fun. But this is race for very experienced and fit endurance athletes and should not be taken lightly. The 2019 event will be the fourth edition, and this race is a non-profit event.
