Open-water swimming events and races, 2010

I don’t know about you, but I often wish there was one place which listed loads of open-water swimming events and races. So I thought I’d compile one. I’m not saying it’s complete, so don’t flick water in my eyes if I haven’t mentioned an event you know about (tell me about it in the comments section, instead, then I’ll add it to the list).


If you’re planning on swimming in any of these events, I’d love to know about it. Leave me a comment, or chat to me about it on Twitter. I’m hoping to do one or two myself (I’ll add them to my list of races).

Big thanks to the lovely people on Twitter, the runnersworld forums and in real, off-line life who helped me compile this list.

If there are any broken links, please leave a comment!
