Mudskipper SwimRun Challenge – powered by Canaqua Sports

Canaqua Sports is proud to present the Mudskipper SwimRun Challenge to the Canadian Marketplace.

Since our first race in 2017 we have been adding races as we work to grow the sport that has taken the world by storm. After cancelling our season in 2020 due to Covid -19 we look forward to running a limited number of races in 2021 leading up to a full schedule in 2022 t with a number of new races across Canada. We look forward to the return of our qualifying events for the World Individual SwimRun Championships and the potential of hosting the Aquaticrunner World cup once things get fully back to normal.

We thank you for your continued support.
