The 2nd Annual Global Swim Series Championships are coming up in a couple months at the end of May and it’s time to start getting excited.  This year the event will be over a 2-day format on May 26-27th.

And in case you needed any further convincing on why you should sign up today, here’s a few highlights:

#1 The Venue  – You could argue that just about anywhere in the Caribbean Sea is a great spot for an open water swim and our venue in Cancun certainly takes advantage of the beautiful blue Caribbean waters.  The race starts on a white sand beach in the hotel district in Cancun.  On Saturday the Cancun Mile and the Cancun Iron Swim (3.8km) will both be run from the beach here.  On Sunday for the full El Cruce 10km crossing, swimmers will start at the beach here and swim across the channel to the beautiful island of Ilsa Mujeres.  It is an epic crossing with clear waters along the way going over a couple coral reefs and passing by the beautiful underwater museum.

#2 Be part of History – Come swim in the world’s largest 10km. Last year there were just over 600 swimmers in the 10km. This year we have 580 already registered for the 10km alone with a cap at 1000 swimmers. As far as we can tell in our research this is the largest 10km open water swim on the planet and we’re excited to break last year’s record! Come help us be a part of history!

#3 The GSS All-Stars – Have you always wanted to get a chance to swim with some of the best in the world? Or maybe you just want a chance to meet some accomplished swimmers and grab an autograph? Well there’s some star power coming down to Cancun this May! We’ve introduced a current lineup of 6 GSS All-Stars that will be both swimming the race and doing an autograph meet and greet at the race expo.
