The King Holds Court In The Open Water

The King Holds Court In The Open Water

From the shores of Mallorca, Spain, the SwimTrek Long Distance Training trips have helped many aspiring English Channel and marathon swimmers – newcomers and veterans – achieve their personal aquatic goals and helped open their eyes to different possibilities.

An extraordinary benefit of these trips is getting to know and talk with Kevin Murphy. Murphy will return to the SwimTrek family in March.

Besides his unprecedented (among men) 34 English Channel crossings, the British swimmer of indomitable spirit has completed dozens of other difficult swims from Australia to Ireland.

In addition to his personal stories, impressionable anecdotes, and own first-hand experiences that are a treasure in the open water swimming community, Murphy has patience, passion and a character that are ideally suited to sharing his knowledge with swimmers on a swim holiday and training camp whether it is swimming technique, understanding with turbulent water conditions, nutrition and feeding, or overcoming physiological challenges from his vast first-hand experience.

SwimTrek’s staff and Murphy are looking forward to the season that starts in Mallorca on March 22nd. For more details visit here.
