XXII Swim Across Nerja

The 22nd annual Swim Across Nerja will be held on Sunday, August 5, at Burriana beach.


Categories are divided up into age groups from juniors to senior citizens with different swimming lengths for each age group.

Registration for the event will take place on the beach at 9:00 am with the first race at 11:00 am for children who will have to swim a distance of 500 metres.

The adult race starts at 11:30 and is held over a distance of 1200 metres.

The number of children looking to take part in the race is limited to 75 swimmers and for adults 200 swimmers.

Participants must sign a waiver form saying that there is no medical reason why they should not take part in the race and that they are responsible for any possible mishaps.

Children under 18 must present authorization from a legal guardian.

Trophies will be awarded to the winners of the race in each class.
