View Full Version : Open Water groups in the Atlanta area?

Anybody swimming open water this time of year? When does it start up around here? I'm a newbie to open water, but I've got a lot of lap swimming under my belt. I'd like to join up with some people who can show me the ropes - to use an ironic pun - of open water swimming. Thanks,

Should start up in the next month or two up at Red Top Mountain on Allatoona.

I got an email from Pete today. OW swimming at Red Top Mtn on Allatoona will begin next month (April 10 & 17) at 9:30am. Temps will be cold, so a wetsuit is recommended unless you are accustomed to cold water swimming. Pete is limiting the swim to 45 min.
