Björklund Finishes Top 10 at Ö Till Ö

Congratulations to Ryder-Walker Guide, Staffan Björklund, and his teammate, Jonas Andersson! They finished 8th at this year’s Ö Till Ö endurance race.

The Ö Till Ö, Swedish for “Island to Island,” traverses 19 islands in the archipelago of Sweden. The event includes 10 km of swimming and 54km of running with competitors entering and exiting the frigid Baltic Sea nearly 40 times during the course of the race. Race organizers call the Ö Till Ö “one of the toughest 1-day races in the world.”

Staffan and Jonas finished the race in 10 hours, 52 minutes and 54 seconds, landing their team, Lag Sandhamn, a respectable top-ten finish.

Props to you Staffan, for your 8th place finish and for your outstanding dedication/training during the course of the summer. Congrats!
