As the racing season still is far away ÖTILLÖ has just launched an interesting project together with the Xtri World tour. To inspire, to motivate and to prepare you for real life racing soon again.

This is a new take on virtual racing and a new collaboration from the creators of two of Scandinavia’s finest extreme sports events. The MyXTRI – MyÖTILLÖ Ultimate Endurance Challenge.


In 2002, unbeknown to each other, two teams, one in Norway and one in Sweden were dreaming up concepts for sports to inspire and challenge athletes; to change the face of triathlon and to create an entirely new way to move through nature.

Deep in the dark and foreboding fjords of Norway came a concept of raw and without-frills triathlon, a race of long distance, potential inclement weather and unrivalled toughness. At the same time on an island near Stockholm a napkin depicting the local archipelago was shaping the minds of others, who knew that this would be the start of the completely new sport of Swimrun?

Fueled by late night enthusiasm and a little drunken madness, the Norseman Xtreme Triathlon and ÖTILLÖ, the origin of Swimrun were born. The evolution of these two endurance beacons is constant, with the race concepts reaching many parts of the globe and enticing thousands of athletes to race and inspiring countless more.

As we evolve and adapt to the changes of the world, the offshoot of Norseman, the XTRI World Tour and the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series have come together to add new challenges to the virtual space.


MyXTRI™ was established in the summer of 2020 and has taken athletes on many personal adventures, where the use of outdoor space and adaptability to the local environment encouraged, and has clocked hundreds of thousands of kilometres and millions of vertical metres of elevation gain.

Now the new Ö TILL X Ultimate Endurance Challenge  will take you on a global adventure, to discover the respective race courses and race locations of the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series and the XTRI® World Tour. 

Take on this challenge and you will be given a new task to complete each month of 2021; to find and undertake distances and verticals from races in both series and to track your progress around the world.

Each month we will offer a draw for a paid spot in an XTRI and an ÖTILLÖ race.

In December finishers of all segments will receive a special T-shirt AND be placed in a draw for a slot in Norseman and the ÖTILLÖ® World Championship race!

You can sign up for just February, or for the whole year here
