International Red Sea SwimCup

Following tradition, on the morning of Saturday of 29st January 2022, a day after ISRAMAN-EILAT, on the same beach, we will be blow the horns starting the International Red Sea SwimCup.

The International Red Sea SwimCup is the only winter open sea swim race in the northern hemisphere, and is possible due to the year-round pleasant temperature in the Gulf of Eilat (22 degrees centigrade – 72 degrees Fahrenheit).

The Gulf of Eilat, on the northern tip of the Red Sea, is world famous as the premier open-water sea swimming venue on the planet.

The regal red mountains, the enchanting sunrises and the majestic sunsets, provide the ultimate backdrop for a perfect swim in the calm deep-blue waters.

A golden opportunity to pick the swim best suited to you – whether a race against elite swimmers, a long distance watery meditation, a recovery after ISRAMAN-EILAT, or a fun swim with friends or family – the International Red Sea SwimCup has it all.
We can’t wait!

The event takes place in accordance with the guidelines of the Ministry of Health and the Green Label.
* Keep up to date with instructions near the time of the event, which may change depending on the disease status and the instructions of the Ministry of Health


The International Red Sea SwimCup will include competitive and non-competitive swims as well as short fun/family swim.
