Marnaton: Open Water Races in Spain (Barcelona and Costa Brava)
Hi all. In case you will be in Spain this summer, or in case you want an excuse to go, you might want to consider signing up to one of Marnaton's open water races. Marnaton has been organizing open water races since 2008 in some of the most beautiful spots in the Mediterranean coast in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands. We'll have around 3500 / 4000 swimmers participating in the various races this year.
This year's program:
May 9th: Barcelona - 2km solo and 8km relays June 7th: Begur - 7km June 27th: St Feliu de Guixols - 6km September 19th: Cadaqués - 6.5km
If you were to choose 1, go to Cadaqués, my favorite town in Spain and my favourite swim spot in the world. After the swim, there is a great party that starts at 10pm and lasts until 6am. There are trophies for the fastest swimmers and for the wildest partiers. There is lots of competition for both :-)
