"The swimrun race of all superlatives"
In the heart of the remarkable Verdon Regional Natural Park the three courses are drawn on the Department of Var and the Department of the Alpes de Haute-Provence, two real places where outdoor sports, especially swimruns, are held. The routes will cross all the municipalities bordering the Lake of Sainte-Croix, as follows a Natural Park, Two Departments And Six communes (Les Salles-sur-Verdon, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, La Palud-sur-Verdon, Aiguines, Bauduen and Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon) which will host this fourth edition.
If the turquoise blue waters of the Lac de Sainte-Croix have been the site of the SWIMRUN GORGES DU VERDON since its inception, it is since 2019 that a magnificent swimming crossing of the Gorges has been imagined by the organisation. A magical moment in the heart of the Most beautiful canyon in Europeof which each participant will keep an unforgettable memory.
We look forward to seeing you in this natural setting on 1 November 2020 for this 4th edition of the SWIMRUNMAN GORGES DU VERDON by HEAD.
