When FINA first added open water swimming to its schedule, it only had the 25 km marathon swim to its schedule at the 1991 FINA World Championships.

Gradually, the 5 km, 10 km and 5 km team trial races were added…as the rest of the aquatic world has started to add more marathon swims.

There are at least 300 official marathon swimming competitions around the world and probably more like 400-500 events.

One of the newest marathon swims is the Iseo Lake Sarnico-Pisogne, a 23 km solo marathon swim organized by Team Federico Troletti.
