This year it will be held on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 May at the free beach in the Cattolica harbour area, with the starting point at Piazza del Tramonto.

Four different races are planned:

  • Full Oceanman: 10 km 
  • Half Oceanman: 5 km

  • Oceankids: 500 mt

The headquarters is located in the open beach of the port area, where you can watch the swimmers start and finish.

In addition, you can try out the many activities offered by the sponsors' booths, or browse the temporary shops stocked with beachwear, wetsuits, open-water swimming equipment and customized products for each event.
