Description

The Waikiki Roughwater Swim (WRS) is one of the world’s greatest open water swimming events and is annually listed in the World’s Top 100 Open Water Swims list and America’s Top 50 Open Water Swims. The swim starts near the Diamond Head volcano, goes across the Waikiki Bay on the island of Oahu in the state of Hawaii. The iconic point-to-point ocean swim was the inspiration for the swim leg of the Hawaiian Ironman triathlon and the Double Roughwater and is organized by the Waikiki Roughwater Swim Committee Inc. It was part of the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 World Open Water Swimming Series
