The Race offered a ‘historical’ experience for swimmers at the site because the history of the Canal dates back thousands of years. The Isthmus of Corinth is a narrow bridge of land connecting mainland Greece with the Peloponnese peninsula, the Gulf of Corinth to the West, the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea to the East. Digging a cutting through the Isthmus, a shortcut for the long and dangerous 700 km (430 mi) journey around the peninsula, was first proposed by the ancients. From antiquity throughout Greek history, engineering schemes were tried and failed until the Canal was finally opened in 1893. Today the Corinth Canal serves 12,000 ships annually.
The organizers of ‘SWIM THE CANAL’ established a 6km swimming race, for adults & children at the Corinth Canal (Isthmus).
The Isthmus is from ancient times the most significant strategic point of Greece and one of the most important of the Eastern Mediterranean.
