2019 Zihuatanejo Sharkfest Swim (Majahua Splash™)
Online registration is closed. Race day registration will be available. You can read the race day details online here.
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.
DISTANCE: 1.1 Miles
WATER TEMP: ~82° F
COURSE CUT-OFF TIME: 60 minutes
