Entry deadlines for the two premiere open water swims in our LMSC — the Jack King 1-mile Ocean Swim and the Chris Greene Cable Swims — are approaching. Enter both today!
With warmer weather upon us, it is time to think about leaving the confines of the pool behind and venturing out into the open water. There are plenty of open water events within driving distance┬áon our calendar.
The annual Chris Greene Lake cable swim is one of the longest-running open water events in the country. Masters swimmers of all ages, backgrounds, and corners of the globe have been flocking to Charlottesville, VA, to compete in the 2-mile race every summer since 1977. Beginning in 1980, Chris Greene Lake has also been a frequent site for USMS Open Water National Championships.
