Santa Fe-Coronda Marathon


Santa Fe-Coronda Marathon

The Santa Fe–Coronda Marathon (formally Coronda River Aquatic Marathon) is an open water swimming competition that takes place on the course of the rivers Coronda and Salado (tributaries of the Paraná River) in Argentina, joining the cities of Santa Fe, Santo Tomé and Coronda, in Santa Fe Province. The marathon has a total length of about 57 km and an expected run time of about 8 hours. It is held yearly in the summer (January or February).

The first competition took place on 22 January 1961 under the name of "Fluvial Marathon of the Argentine Littoral". The marathon was not held, due to economic problems and/or varied political troubles, in 1968, 1969, 1971–1973, 1980–1986, and 1989. Since the 1990s (and as of 2006) it has been celebrated annually without interruption.
