The 2018 Race For The Conch Eco-SeaSwim will be held on July 7th in Turks & Caicos. The turquoise water over the 2.4-mile, 1-mile, and 0.5-mile courses attract swimmers from throughout the Americas and around the world.

Envisioned by race director Ben Stubenberg, the event has a warm, family feel…that was unexpectedly reinforced in the 2014 race. Over the 2.4-mile course, American masters swimmer Laura Hamel (1:02:27) and her collegiate swimming son, Dirk Hamel (48:56), won the women’s and men’s Race For The Conch Eco-SeaSwim in Turks & Caicos, respectively, in 2014.
