Aquathon shoe advice

I am going to take part in the Öloppet Aquathon in Sweden. It is a race of 5k swim and 32 K run. But the catch is the race starts at one point and finishes 37 k later. Swim to an island run across it, swim to the next, run across it, etc. Distance varies depending on length of water crossing and length of island. You must wear a wetsuit. You must carry or wear your shoes. I would love to know if there are shoes that I might be able to wear that won't drag me down in the swims and stay sloshy and heavy throughout the runs. Am I dreaming? Should I just carry a pack and put my shoes on and off?
