Vansbro Tjejsim is 1k, and swum against the current in river Västerdalälven. A tip of advice is to swim close to shore to avoid the most powerful currents. Start waves are divided in non-elite competition and elite competition. Start wave 1 is included in the elite competition and the non-elite competition starts from start wave 2. Participants may seed for start waves 1-2. We have automatic seeding from our own races, for three years back in time, but swimmers may also report participation from other similar races to Vansbro Tjejsim (1k), in order to be placed in a suitable start wave in relation to swimming ability.
First start is at 11:00 AM and start waves are continuously released every 10 minutes up until 1.30 PM.
