As the weather warms up, everyone is ready to get outside and enjoy nature’s beauty. Be sure to lock in one last weekend of outdoor fun and register for September’s Lake Swim now – it has become a fabulous way to end the summer season in one of Virginia’s finest water destinations. Our race home is Mariner’s Landing on Smith Mountain Lake, a site that last year’s competitors will tell you has some of the cleanest water for an open water swim that you can find. Couple that with the fabulous resort accommodations at an event discounted price, and you can turn the Lake Swim into a weekend getaway for a family, friends or an entire team. We have added age groups for Saturday’s 5K race in hopes of attracting more participants for that event and rewarding those in similar age brackets for their efforts. As always, this is an event for everyone, from the high level competitive swimmer to the recreational masters swimmers — all are welcome! We look forward to seeing you in September – make sure to register and reserve your room accommodations at Mariner’s Landing soon!
