We often say that in the Global Swim Series there is a race for everyone.  Lots of people love the huge races for the competition.  Some people like the small races for the slower pace.  Some like the urban races and some like the very remote and exotic races.  Well this race falls into the “exotic tropical” category!

So if you want something a little different and really spectacular?  Then mark June 16, 2019 on your calendar, because this is it… The Guanaja – Green Island Open Water Swim!

How about a truly exotic location for a swim in the Bay Islands of Honduras?! This is some of the most beautiful beaches and water in the Caribbean.

The 3 main Bay Islands of Honduras are: Roatan (famous for spectacular diving), Utila (great for whale shark spotting) and the island where this race takes place, Guanaja!

Guanaja is famous for it’s fishing, coral reef, kite-surfing and snorkelling. The Green Island Open Water Swim is also putting Guanaja on the map as an incredible open water race too!

The actual swim route is a swimmers dream course! Swimmers pass over sandy bottoms and vibrant coral beds, which are home to beautiful and colorful marine life!

The event has a distance for everyone, participants can chose from three distances: 800m / 2.5k / 5k.

Swimmers enjoy a festive race-day atmosphere with post-race awards ceremony on a beautiful beach shoreline. The entry fee is only $25 pp and includes: pre-race welcome reception and clinic, dinner entrée at reception, Open Water T-shirt & swim cap, and transportation to/from race.

You can look forward to swimming in the crystal clear and warm tropical water and relaxing on the pristine beaches… and know you will enjoy this unique and spectacular Caribbean location!
