Swimrun for me is freedom. Freedom of movement: I can swim or run and I don't need any bridges for crossing the river. Freedom from other opinions: I don't care what people are thinking about runner in swimming cap and goggles with orange buoy and in wet shoes. Freedom of communication: I can join a group which go the same way, or doing myself, if it is more convenient for me. Freedom of choice: I can oversleep or I can come at 6 a.m. for training with people who are close to my spirit. And I come.
Swimrun is open water, trail running and working in team. You will never reach where you can go in pair by swimrun.
Swimrun is true and honest sport. If you swim well, then you swim well, if you run well, then you run well. In swimrun "not guess a ski wax" is impossible. In swimrun no one mechanism will never fail. There are no records, no rules for planning distances and no predictability. Weather decide, how difficult or lite will be the race. Nature decide how you must leave your comfort zone for finishing the race. Swimrun is very simple in idea: just swim and run with your friend where you want. The main thing for me is emotions and a feeling of absolute happiness at the finish line.

Swimrun is very similar to biathlon. An endless series of stages, always different terrain, different lakes, without the same circles, only the forest, teammate and you! Running and swimming and not just once, but many times! Swimrun is a team sport. If you find a teammate same as you by power and soul, so your team is invincible! You can do everything if you believe in your teammate and yourself! Swimrun is an adventure, a challenge to your team! Swimrun is a forest, trails and swamps, mountains and stones, magnificent landscape around, you just have to look back! Swimrun is support and help each other! "You can or you can't is just your decision!" (c) Legend #17

It is complete unity with friend and nature without borders and prohibitions! Water in interweaving with the smell of forest! When you see movies is impossible not to want it! Swimrun fascinated us at first sight! We understood - that is what we need! So, GAGARIN team was born!

If you put your knee on my chest and try to look deep into the soul, then on the shelf named Swimrun you can see a thick folder named Friends.
Swimrun is like a door to another dimension. There is no fuss, worries and restrictions. Only you are in hugs with race. Emotion and emptiness are friends there, the impossible helps to reality and feelings escalate to the limit.
