This is Rockman Swimrun - Along the path of a Legend
This is the challenge against what locals say is impossible, the battle against one of the most dramatic natures the world has to offer. This is the adventure that will force you to cross crystal clear ice cold fjords, climb longer stairs than you ever thought existed and master rocky mountain plateaus. Your weapons of choice are your team mate, wetsuit, running shoes and your body and mind.
The Rockman racers will follow the path of the Rockman legend that, according to the local myth, brought the Kjerag bolt from the foot of Preikestolen to the Kjerag crack. The course changes as the parts of the myth reveals.

Rockman 2017 starts with a narrow fjord swim from Fantahålå to the shore where the climb to Revsvatnet where Rockman loved to swim. From Preikestolen mountain lodge continues the journey to the first rock of the test, Preikestolen, where the athletes will turn around and run a rocky climb back down into the fjord. At these shores, the soon to be born Rockmen will perform a swim leg along the fjord before running along a nice path and cutting down to the fjord again.
The longest swim leg continues for 1.7 km across the fjord. The ascent from the cold fjord waters doesn’t give hope for rest when the Rockmen needs to continue the journey with 4444 steps to the sky (750 m in 1 km).
