Cocos International Crossing In Guam

The 22nd annual Cocos International Crossing will be held in Guam on May 27th.

In the early morning hours, swimmers are ferried off the southern tip of the main island of Guam to Cocos Island, a beautiful uninhabited Pacific island. Located within the Merizo Barrier Reef, over 300 swimmers are expected to do a channel crossing of 3.52 kilometers from Cocos Island to Merizo Pier. The water temperature is expected to be a comfortable 24 – 28°C with a cut-off time of 2 hours 30 minutes.

Held continuously since 1990, the Manukai Athletic Club is a generous and hospitable host from age-group and masters swimmers who come from throughout the Pacific region to participate.
