A weekly group swim at 301 Marina Court in Lexington, SC (NO LONGER AT THE DAM). The current schedule is every Sunday at 5pm. FREE to anyone who wants to join. Anyone from first timers to experienced swimmers are welcome to join.
The workout completely depends on who shows up on the day and what races are approaching. It won’t always be perfect conditions and everyone is responsible for themselves, but it will only be better with others! Remember, race day will not always be pretty conditions and this is the best place to prepare for that.
I (Adam) may not be able to attend due to my move to Denver, but will still attempt to keep the event organized and going! If you have any questions about Open Water swimming or triathlons then feel free to ask and I’ll do what I can to help! I’m also always available for messages outside of the event as well.
There are a few brands/businesses that are willing to help out our group with deals and support and you can find some established below. If you have any questions about finding or ordering any gear then just let me know. We may also plan for dinner after if there is any interest!
If you have seen any swimmers in the lake with a bright buoy trailing behind them, there is a good chance that it is a New Wave Swim Buoy. These buoys provide additional visibility from boats, a dry place to put your phone/keys, and something to grab onto if you need a little additional flotation (though it is not classified as a lifesaving device). If you ever venture to the edge or outside of a designated swim area, this is pretty much a must-have item. I have a good number of extra buoys for swimmers to use for our swimmers to use on Sundays, but I encourage you to check out getting a buoy for yourself and their other products at their website here. Use code “ilovebuoys” for 10% off sitewide.
