Are you the type of swimmer who thinks shorter races — ie, anything less than 500 yards — are a waste of time? Good news! There will be a series of open water swims (Apr 30) during USMS Spring Nationals, which are being held Apr 28-May 1 in Mesa, AZ. You can combine your distance freestyle events, the 400 IM, with a quick 4K OW swim in lovely Saguaro Lake, pictured below. See the upcoming events page for details and online entry.
