What Is A Swimrun Wetsuit?

Swimrun wetsuits are specifically designed for a unique multisport endurance race called "Swimrun." In Swimrun events, participants alternate between swimming and running multiple times throughout a course that typically includes both land and water segments. Swimrun wetsuits are specially crafted to provide buoyancy and flexibility for efficient swimming while also allowing for comfortable running. Sumarpo provides 100% Eco-Friendly Swimrun Wetsuits for customers who like outdoor swimming and running sports in Europe.

Here are some key features and characteristics of swimrun wetsuits:


Swimrun wetsuits are typically made from neoprene, a synthetic rubber material that offers excellent insulation and buoyancy in the water. Sumarpo Swimrun Wetsuits are made of premium Yamamoto #39 SCS neoprene which is buoyant and durable, ensuring you get the most out of your strokes in water whilst remaining tough for climbing out of it.

Thickness: Swimrun wetsuits usually have varying thicknesses throughout the suit. The torso area tends to have thicker neoprene panels for enhanced buoyancy, while thinner panels are used in the arms and legs to facilitate flexibility and freedom of movement during running.

Zipper Placement

Swimrun wetsuits often feature a front zipper that runs vertically from the chest to the waist. This allows competitors to easily open the wetsuit during the running sections for better ventilation and mobility.

Removable Sleeves

Some swimrun wetsuits come with removable sleeves, offering the option to convert the suit into a sleeveless version for races in warmer conditions or when greater arm mobility is desired.


Swimrun wetsuits may include built-in pockets, strategically placed on the thighs or chest, to store energy gels, navigation tools, or other small essentials needed during the race.


Swimrun wetsuits are designed to withstand the demands of both swimming and running. They are constructed with reinforced stitching and durable materials to withstand the wear and tear of transitioning between water and land.

Bright Colors

Swimrun wetsuits often feature bright and highly visible colors to enhance safety during open-water swims and aid in the easy identification of participants.

It's worth noting that swimrun wetsuits come in different variations and styles, depending on the specific needs of the athlete and the race requirements. It's always recommended to try on different wetsuit brands and models to find the one that fits your body shape and offers the desired combination of buoyancy, flexibility, and comfort for swimrun events.
