Setubalbay - International Swim Marathon in June

Organised by the International Swimming Federation (FINA) it will take place in Setúbal on the 26th June the 2010 10k Marathon Swimming World Cup which will be held in the Setúbal Bay, in front of the Albarquel Urban Park.

On its 5th edition, this competition takes place each year in Setúbal and this year is part of nice races in three different continents.

The Portuguese people possess an outstanding passion for open water sport due to the proximity with the sea and maritime heritage and the choice for Setúbal to host this event is due to the beautiful natural environment of the Bay of Setúbal.

The event will be held over the Olympic distance of 10km and will attract the best national and international open waters swimming specialists.

Spectators will be able to follow all the event from close up and there will be a dedicated area decorated for the occasion, with entertainment from DJ's.

The event will take place at 4pm but if you're coming to Setúbal and are an open water enthusiastic like us, you'll get the chance to participate and compete over the same course in the open event held at 11am on the day. How cool is that?

A flying display by the Aerobatics Team will complete the programme of activities planned for the afternoon.
