The annual John Shrum Memorial cable swim at Chris Greene Lake 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.
