Over the weekend dozens of athletes made their way to Sheenboro to participate in an up and coming form of endurance competition: a swimrun.
A swimrun is a competition that originated in Sweden in the early 2000s that involves a cross-country style course with many transitions between swimming and running stages of the race. The Amphibious Challenge, as the local race is known, was started last year by TV host, endurance athlete and Sheenboro resident Simon Donato.
