Courtesy of Faros Maratón, a a 16 km race from Stari Grad to Faros, Croatia organized by the Croatian Long Distance Swimming Federation.

From row boats to motor boats, Faros Maratón has constantly evolved.

Over the last 40 years, Faros has grown from a small provincial marathon swim into a world-class event drawing the international elite. But it is still 16 long kilometers in Stari Grad Bay.
