Kajaani SwimRun 1.8.2020 and the prologue 31.7.2020 Kajaani River Swimming has been cancelled

On 22 April 2020, the Finnish government has outlined that the ban on public events for more than 500 people should be extended at least until 31 July 2020 due to the COVID-19 situation. Kajaani SwimRun 2020 would probably not be an event for more than 500 people, but ensuring the health of our event participants, employees, volunteers and partners, and other residents of the planet, is our priority number 1.

For these reasons, we feel responsible for canceling the event at this point, while saving participants from unneccessary uncertainty. We apologize for the situation and thank you for your understanding!

However, we are pleased to announce that the 2021 Kajaani SwimRun will be held on Saturday, July 31, 2021, and the prologue, Kajaani River Swimming on Friday, July 30, 2021!

Stay healthy and enjoy the coming summer!


Kajaani SwimRun is a magnificent sports experience in the most beautiful scenery of Kajaani. The route of the event is based on the beautiful and historic track of Renfors. Kajaani SwimRun swimming sections take place in the clean Kajaani River. Even though the route passes through an urban environment, it is still in the middle of the most beautiful summer nature. Travel options include the 5 km Hermann’s Sprint (Individual Race) and about 10 km Elias’s track (Pair race and individual Race).

The event arrangements are guaranteed by Endurance Kainuu quality with the expertise of Kajaani Swimming Club.

Welcome aboard!
