Come and experience open-water swimming in a race setting but without the pressure of a race. Whether you’re training for your first triathlon and working on getting comfortable outside of the swimming pool or you’re preparing for your 10th Iron-distance race, you will find this non-competitive open-water practice swim to be extremely helpful in your training.
We will have quarter-mile and half-mile courses set up for you. If you wish to swim more than a half mile, you may do multiple laps. A time clock will be running during the swim for you to check your splits and pace. The course will be open for 1.5 hours. Swim for as long or as little as you’d like!
Saturday, June 17: Our Open-Water Practice Swim will be held from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM at the Portage Lake unit of Waterloo State Recreation Area. Our Tri Goddess Triathlon will be held on Sunday, June 25 at this location.
Your registration fee includes an Epic swim cap and post-event snacks.
The Epic Open-Water Practice Swim is sanctioned by USA Triathlon (USAT). Participants who do not have a yearly USAT membership will need to purchase a one-day USAT license for $15. The USAT fee for youth 17 and under is $10 and is good for one year.
