What makes the International Swimming Marathon Port-Burgas unique open water event is precisely its location. In the water area of ​​the marine station, swimmers are protected by the harbor breakwater from large waves and the strong currents of the open sea. It is for this reason that the water is always calm, there are no strong and unpredictable currents. The conditions are very close to those of a huge swimming pool, only with salt water. The entire course of the swimming marathon can be observed from land and each swimmer can be supported by their relatives and friends. This makes the Port-Burgas Swimming Marathon an extremely attractive competition for the public to watch.

The total prize fund is in the amount of BGN 20,000 (EUR 10,000)
