Description

The Faros Maratón Swim is also the annual Croatian International Long Distance Swimming Championships, a 16-kilometer race from Stari Grad to Faros, Croatia. It is organized by the Croatian Long Distance Swimming Federation that was inducted in the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame as an Honour Organisation in 2012. The competition has developed over the last 40 years from a small provincial marathon swim into a world-class event drawing the international elite. The professional race is 16 kilometers in the sea of Stari Grad Bay on Hvar Island and takes place in the last week of August. Faros Maratón is a part of the World Swimming Majors and is one of the World’s Top 100 Open Water Swims.
