Responsibility and Risk
As a swimmer, you should be aware of the risks and the responsibility connected to marathon swimming. You should never attempt to swim in open water without being aware of the risks connected to your own survival. Thus, marathon swimming requires total dedication.
Get ready for the challenge
For a swim like SwimÖresund, a good open water coach specialised in open water swimming may be crucial. The coach can provide you with swimming programmes designed for marathon swimming, and offer assistance and coaching within this specific field.
