The III eDreams Marnaton Cup starts off with a bang after this Saturday’s successful Marnaton in Barcelona (I Marnaton eDreams Barcelona). The event took place in Catalonia’s capital and was received with a lot of enthusiasm both by locals and tourists, with over 700 swimmers participating in the challenge and a great number of curious visitors stopping by to experience the excitement first-hand. Even the sun played its part, and the warm water temperature of 17 º C persuaded many brave individuals to go swimming without a wetsuit!
