The Marathon Swim in Auckland on Sunday, 22 April 2018 is a 12.5 km ocean swim for individual swimmers and teams of 2-6 people.
Note that in 2018 the swim is 12.5km instead of the usual 10km. It is with the tide all the way so the times should be similar to a 10km swim.
Due to the distance and the duration of the event, each swimmer or team must provide their own on water support (kayak, SUP or power boat suitable for supporting a swimmer). Teams of 4 people or over must supply a power boat that can carry those team members not in the water.
