Nearby Races

Although September is often a slow time for meets and OW races, there are still quite a few upcoming events that are within our LMSC (or within driving distance).

Fitness Challenges and Events

Most USMS members will not participate in a pool meet or open water race this year, but there are still a number of non-competitive Fitness Events that can help motivate you. The two most prominent are the Check Off Challenge and the Go The Distance events.
