The course for the 4 km and 2 km races starts with a stretch out along beautiful Sant Sebastià beach. At the turn swimmers exit the water on foot for the chip check point and to avoid a barrier of rocks, then swim roughly 1 km back to the start.
Not only is the weekend full of amazing swims for competitors and their cheering squad but there are also beach yoga classes on Friday and Saturday.
The goal of the Marnaton Cup is to bring friends and family together to celebrate and compete in open water swimming. So come celebrate with a fantastic swim in Barcelona, Spain!
