Finding A Rhythm In Nature

Bruckner Chase of Ocean City Swim Club in New Jersey says, “There is always a rhythm to our natural world. Watch your strokes with the water, match your strides with the earth.” Chase is an endurance athlete: marathon swimmer, ultra-marathon runner. During his lockdown in New Jersey, he can either swim out in the Atlantic Ocean or do its equivalent on dryland with long trail runs. He calls open water swimming the ‘trail running of the sea’ – and trail running ‘open water swimming on land’.
Omar El Galla swam 220 km along the length of the Gulf of Aqaba in the Sinai Peninsula. Hi assisted stage swim from the north at Taba to the south at Ras Mohamed in 2019 took 34 days (with 26 swimming days and 8 days off due to the logistical challenges and preparations needed to pass some areas). He was supported by Nabil Rostom and had to traverse some pretty difficult terrain.
