4/20/2024

ok

Only 2 weeks to register to the Neda el Món Illes Medes per la Marató de TV3 by ZOGGS that we will run on the 5th May. Medes is a unique and very special open waters event. Very special for two reasons: because it is the only solidarity open waters event from Catalonia which destinates 100% of the benefits to the TV3 Marathon, and because it takes place at the Medes Islands Natural Park, a superlative natural environment.

From year 2022 onwards, Neda el Món transformed this open waters competition into a great event: You will be able to choose the length of the crossing according to your swimming possibilities, there will be a crossing for kids, the best brands will be displayed and a meet-and-greet with the best swimmers.

Here you have all the info.

Freesowl, a new way to explore seas, rivers and lakes

3/18/2024

manresa

Our swimaddict James Manresa introduces Freesowl, bringing a new way to explore the coasts of seas, rivers, and lakes by swimming self-sufficiently.

The backpack, eco-designed and produced with materials partly recovered from the oceans, can carry everything needed for multi-day excursions, alternating between swimming and walking as desired. The experience can be personalized with accessories such as solar panels to recharge electronic devices, a multi-support pole to carry a camera, or even pockets to store trash collected from the sea, among others.

"In 2009, I felt the need to travel along a coast swimming, similar to how hikers walk in the mountains, but there was no backpack to do it, so I built one myself," explains James Manresa. "I tested the new prototype by exploring Cap de Creus and sections of the Ebre River, among others, and it went so well that I felt it was time to share it."

Freesowl is generating a lot of interest among swimmers, travellers, adventurers, and sports enthusiasts in general. This has led the creator to fund the launch of limited first units at special prices through a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter from March 12th to April 12th.

Freesowling represents a new milestone in the rise of sustainable activities in open waters, allowing users to enjoy an unprecedented playful and immersive experience with the awareness that a portion of the profits will be dedicated to cleaning plastics from rivers and seas.

Medes 2022: the most cheritable and... the most sustainable!

2/23/2024

sostenible

From the beginning, in 2010, the Neda el Món Illes Medes per la Marató de TV3 by ZOGGS has been the only popular 100% charitable crossing in Catalonia.  From now on, the 2022 edition, we want it to be the most sustainable too, from environmental point of view. And we want it to be sustainable in 1) mobility and 2) waste management:

  1. Sustainable mobility, using motorized vehicles on land as few as possible, encouraging public transport, optimizing the motorized vehicles and promoting non-motorized transport: walking, cycling, using skateboards…
  2. Sustainable waste management, recycling plastics, paper and organics. At the departure area and the arrival area you will find yellow containers for the plastic packaging and cups, blue containers for paper, and brown containers for organics. At the food and drink supply during the crossing, all swimmers will get a recyclable cup which they must use so the Neda el Món staff will refill it each time. Swimmers must keep that cup.

Obviously, in order to achieve the most sustainable possible event, we need the collaboration of all swim addicts. Altogether we will do it!
