As a result of the preventive actions before the COVID-19 (better known as coronavirus), the Marnatón Begur test has had to modify its date, and postpone the event to 10/31/2020

________________________________________________________________________

What plans do you have before summer begins? From Racetick we suggest you participate in the open water crossing of Begur the next weekend of October 31 : the MARNATON Begur . One more year you will experience journeys of great beauty in a natural environment defined by cliffs and coves with crystal clear water, the maximum expression of the Costa Brava .

In the beautiful heart of Empordà, Begur stands out both for being one of the most beautiful towns with beaches on the entire Costa Brava, and for having one of the historical centers with the most manifestations of its splendid medieval era: its medieval castle, its coraleros , its fishermen, Indians and cork have starred in brilliant pages of a history that is reflected in each street, in each house and its narrow streets are vivid images of a late period that still beats strongly among its people.

We encourage you to go to Begur to know its corners and to take advantage of the visit by participating in the most significant annual swimming test in the area. The distances that this test offers you are the following:

  • 3K distance
  • Distance 7K
  • 4x1000M relays
  • KIDS: so that the little ones can also enjoy this day, the organization has planned a series of tests (according to age) in Platja Sa Riera without any competitive desire, only to have a good time and start this wonderful sport.

This test is part of the Marnaton Edreams Cup and, together with the previous tests in Barcelona and Formentera, and the subsequent ones in Sant Feliu de Guíxols and Cadaqués.

Don't tell us you are going to miss it!
