Another Cork Distance Week is in the books.

The most challenging, most difficult, longest marathon and channel and cold water swimming preparation camp designed by International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame Honor Administrator Ned Denison saw dozens of accomplished and aspiring swimmers push themselves to their limits in Sandycove Island, Cork, Ireland.

High mileage and significant psychological stress over 8 days, concluding with the Body Brain Confusion Swim, were the treats handed out by Denison to help the swimmers achieve their various marathon swimming and channel swimming goals.

The camp also honored the Triple Crowners among its campers for those to have achieved the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming.
