Ages 13 and above.  But ages 13-17 are only allowed to do the 3km distance.

18 & above are eligible to swim any of the three distances.

All participants are required to sign a waiver, and those under 18 years old need the signature of their parent or guardian.


The 3km race will be an out-and-back swim (1.5km out + 1.5km back).  This straight line will be within the Pico de Loro Cove.

The 5km race will be an out-and-back swim (2.5km out + 2.5km back).  This straight line swim will curve slightly to the next cove on the right till the 2.5km marker, then the swimmer turns around and swims back to shore.

The 8km race will be the 5km route followed by the 3km route.   There will be a short beach run (a hydration station will be on shore) after finishing the initial 5k route before returning to the water to swim the last 3-kilometers.

FINA Rules on open water will apply (exception is the allowing of wetsuits and speed suits). Highlighted rules are the following:

  • No drafting or pacing by a lead boat.
  • A swimmer cannot touch any floating device, safety craft, or crew.  As soon as a swimmer stops to hang on to any floating device or boat, or is helped by a marshal, he/she will be out of podium contention, but as long as he/she does not propel themselves forward using any floating device, marshal, or boat, then they will be eligible to finish.
  • Any race official can decide, for safety reasons, to pull out a swimmer from the water and end their race.


Trophies will be awarded to the Top three (3) MALE and Top three (3) FEMALE finishers of each race distance (3K/5K/8k).

All swimmers who complete the race will receive a Finisher’s T-shirt.
