There will be a half-mile triangle course and a one-mile triangle course with 30-minute and one-hour time limits. Able swimmers ages 10+ can register for either the half-mile straight course or one-mile triangle course. Participants who want the ultimate challenge can register for both races at a discounted price.
Certified lifeguards will be on duty. Awards will be given to the top overall male and female swimmers, and every registered swimmer will receive a specially designed commemorative swim cap and shirt. [Read more…]
