The races are 10 kilometers in distance and are held in countries such as Brazil, United Arab Emirates, Portugal, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, China and Mexico.

Many of the races are in loop courses that allow for spectators to see the athletes battling with each other throughout the race. There are usually around 250 total male and female athletes every year who compete in this series. Its longer equivalent on the professional marathon swimming circuit is the FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix that has a number of races longer than 15 km.
