Multisport, with an extreme twist
switch /swɪtʃ/ verb: switch;

SWITCH is a team relay race incorporating as many of Extremsportsvekos’ sports as possible. Switching sports and routes each year means that no two races will be the same.
A maximum of ten teams will compete in a continuous series of stages in an adventure/endurance style race, switching rapidly from one sport and athlete to another, with the aim to achieve the fastest overall time. The winning team will take home the SWITCH title and a generous cash prize. There will be a minimum of four team members required and at least one of them must be female.
- Mixed teams
- Maximum of 10 teams
- Minimum of one female per team
- Whitewater Kayaking
