Information which might help[edit]

Long-distance swimming is distinguished from ordinary swimming in that the distances involved are longer than are typically swum in pool competitions. When a given swim calls more on endurance than on outright speed, it is the more likely to be considered a long-distance swim.

Long-distance swims tend to fall into one of two categories:

  1. swims in which the start date and start time are chosen by the individual swimmer (often called solo-swims), and
  2. swims that involve a group-start.

Open water swimming takes place in outdoor bodies of water such as open oceans, lakes, and rivers.
