Wednesday Open Water Swim (WOWS) is back!
This event, put on by Grim Reaper Fitness, allows multisport athletes to get open water swim practice every Wednesday during the summer. The swim is held at the lake at Miller Park (enter off Morris Ave., just behind the zoo) from 5:00 to 6:30 every Wednesday, weather permitting.
The first swim of the season will be held May 15, allowing three opportunities for athletes to get in open water practice prior to our local triathlon, TriShark. Swims will continue throughout the summer until attendance begins to drop, usually mid-August or after.
WOWS is open to the public and a $5 donation is required to pay for lifeguards. GRF members are entitled to free entry.
The beach was cleaned this week, so we look forward to seeing everyone on the 15th.
