The Coral Swim (previously known as the Red Sea Swim) was held between 12-26 October 2022 when Lewis Pugh swam 123.42 km on a 16-day stage swim across the Red Sea from Tiran Island in Saudi Arabia to Hurghada in Egypt at the age of 52 to call attention to and effect change in a changing marine environment. The Red Sea Swim took a total of 46 hours 13 minutes 44 seconds over 25 different swim stages in water that averaged 27.3°C, ahead of the UN Climate Conference (COP27) in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.
