Superstar Guests At The END-WET

Courtesy of END-WET, Red River, North Dakota and Minnesota.

What do Darren Miller, Jen Schumacher, Annaleise Carr, Sarah Thomas, and Jeff Utsch have in common?

They have been the guest swimmers of the END-WET 36-mile (57.9 km) marathon swim down the Red River between Grand Forks, North Dakota and Oslo, Minnesota in the United States.

END-WET is looking for nominations for its next event on June 16th 2018. Athletes of similar stature and talents like Miller, Schumacher, Carr, Thomas and Utsch are sought.

The organizers have annually selected swimmers who are open water swimming ambassadors. "They've all been some of the most awesomely nice people we've ever met.

Again this year, we're asking you, the swimming community, for your nominations. Who exemplifies open water swimming and/or marathon swimming to you? Who has a story to share, or exemplifies sport in a positive way? Tell us who you're nominating and why. We'll pick someone and cover their flight, lodging, and food while they're here.

Free race for the price of a short talk? Heck yeah

To nominate, visit here or email hello@endracing.com.

The Other Shore

The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac

An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...

The trends are very clear.
The tide is rising for open water swimming.
