ARK Supersprint was hosted for the first time on May 16th as the world's first ever individual Swimrun Supersprint. An extremely short and arena friendly course at Edsvik just outside Stockholm with only 1000m running in two sections and 200m swimming.
The Supersprint is run in heats with only 3-5 racers on the starting line. It's all about positioning and the tactical play will be decisive. Like Ski-Cross meets sprint cross-country skiing.

In 2021 the course records were set and we saw our two first Supersprint Champions. Max Andersson with the time 6:10 and Desiree Andersson with the time 6:49.
In 2022 we saw even more World Champions and elite competitors, mixed with some really hot Wild Cards on the starting line. When the dust cleared Hugo Tormento (FRA) won with the record-breaking time of 5:51 and Desiree Andersson (SWE) defended her title and set the new course record time of 6:32.
