The swimming marathon distance first came to prominence as a 10k open water event at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008. The marathon swim has been a key spectacle in the Olympic schedule ever since with spectacular races in the Serpentine (London 2012) and at Copacabana Beach (Rio 2016).
Marathon Swims has redefined the challenge as an indoor, pool-based Marathon 10k, Half Marathon 5k and a 1k Challenge distance event.
Marathon Swims has an innovative format that delivers instant, reliable results, and enhances the
event experience for spectators and participants.“We wanted to deliver the same sense of occasion and challenge as the London Marathon delivers for runners. Swimming now has its own marathon and we’re excited about the prospects of developing a national series of events.” stated founder of Marathon Swims, Diccon Loy.
