|The Sharkfest Series has gone INTERNATIONAL! This not-to-be-missed tropical adventure will take place in beautiful Troncones, Gro., Mexico. The event will be an untimed, non-competitive affair where everyone swims together as a group. The swim will start in the sleepy village of Majahua, go out around Point Majahua and then finish in front of Hacienda Eden in Manzanillo Bay. Who can pass up an opportunity to swim in Paradise and finish at Eden? We are asking for a small donation from each swimmer to cover the cost of t-shirts, power boat captain fees, etc.
Race Day Details
All swimmers will be required to check-in and pay their donation fee at the swim finish at Hacienda Eden before the start of the swim. Then you will all walk together about a half mile to the start in Majahua.
Swim Support Volunteers
Any paddlers, surfers, or kayakers should meet at Majahua Beach at 8:45 am. Extra paddleboards and kayaks may be available for those that don't have their own.
