On October 27th you have an unmissable date in Caldes d'Estrac with the Tuna Race Balfegó Caldetes swimming journey organized by Balfegó Grup . The journey will take place along the Caldetes coast , on a tour of Playa dels Tres Micos where swimmers can enjoy the tranquility and climate of the Maresme. The SWIM 1.5K is the short distance of the TRB Caldetes that adapts to your needs, while the long distance of 4K is designed for the most daring.

The mandatory material is as follows:

  • Beanie provided by visible organization
  • Swimsuit
  • Swimming goggles
  • Timing chip delivered by the organization placed on the ankle

The optional material is as follows:

  • Use of swimming neoprene
  • Safety buoy

Furthermore, the organization recommends bringing:

  • Vaseline to prevent chafing
  • Sun protection cream

The organization allows the use of watches or aquatic GPS and strictly prohibits the use of any utensil or auxiliary material for training, flotation or propulsion to help carry out the test. The use of aquatic MP3s or similar (that prevent a correct hearing of the safety notices during the test) is also restricted.

To end the journey in the best way, can you imagine a rooftop with these views, while listening to music accompanied by a vermouth? Well, it is possible, since after the Tuna Race the party continues at Dynamic Hotels!

We wait for you next October 27 in Caldetes to live an unforgettable experience in the waters of the Mediterranean. You're still on time, train hard and prove yourself!  

Travel

The two distances that can be chosen are: 1.5K and 4K . At both distances you will have to skirt the Caldes d'Estrac coast, popularly known as Caldetes, at the Tres Micos Beach . This is a great opportunity to jump in the water because, despite the fact that the crossing takes place at the end of October, the pleasant climate of the Maresme still allows you to enjoy a good soak. Also, being so close to Barcelona, this event allows you to visit the area in a very comfortable way.
