Over fishing, climate change, pollution, and the lack of education have pushed our oceans to the brink of collapse.

We are deeply invested in bringing people who love the ocean together around ocean conservation at our events: using their energy in their sport, for good. We call this Swimmers for the Sea and invite some of the top athletes to apply to support this initiative and lead the way.

It is not just a race!
