The Marathon of Open Water Swim Races - Swim Miami 2014

Since 1989, swimmers have been flocking to Miami to be a part of what is considered to be the marathon of open water swim races.  Swim Miami 2014 has been recognized as one of America’s Top 100 Open Water Swims for its unique beauty and interesting course.   Open water swimming is one of the most intense endurance sports and participants brave rough waters from oceans to lakes and rivers.  

The original idea and concepts for Swim Miami came about due to a demand to bring open-water swim races to the forefront of aquatic sports with intentions of developing it into an Olympic sport as well as a way for swimmers to give back to the sport that was able to give them a life of health and fitness.  Proceeds of the race benefit The H2O Foundation – Helping Others Swim to eliminate downing in South Florida through educational opportunities.  

 This self-proclaimed “Marathon of Swimming” takes place April 19, 2014 has been heralded as’s  “One of the 7 Swims to do Before You Dieand focuses on Olympic-style swimming and its elite swim field. Past Olympians and professionals to swim in the event have included Gary Hall, Jr., Milorad Čavić, George Bovell, Ricardo Monasterio, Anthony Ervin, Ed Moses, Nathan Adrian, Robert Strauss, and Tiffany Cohen.

Swim Miami currently consists of four swims: a ten-kilometer swim, a five-kilometer swim, the Miami Mile, and an eight-hundred meter swim and starts from Watson Beach at Parrot Jungle and the course takes participants past gorgeous beach-front homes of noted celebrities.  

Good luck to all participants of Swim Miami 2014 from the HiltonMiami Downtown!
