The race began at 10:00 a.m., and was swum in the Guadalquivir River in the city center. 55 men swam the event.[1]

The 10 kilometer distance of the race was reached by completed 4 laps of the 2.5-kilometer course set up for the championships.

2008 Olympics qualifying[edit]

The Men's 10K was one of two races at the 2008 Open Water Worlds that served as a qualifier for the 2008 Olympics (the other qualifying race was the Women's 10K, the previous day).

The top-10 finishers and the next top finisher from each Continent (5) qualified for the 2008 Olympics (this comprised 15 of the 25 spots for the event at the 2008 Olympics). However, the 5 continental qualifiers could not be from a country that had someone in the top-10 (i.e. the second qualifier from a country couldn't be a continental qualifier).
