Noblesville is a suburb of Indianapolis. It would be a pretty long drive from Chicago.

Noblesville's swimming venue, Morse Reservoir, is 193 miles from Ohare. Yes, there are abundant hotels with reasonable prices in the area.
Thanks for your interest in the event.:banana:

If I don't get in the GCBS 4.4 lottery, I'm doing this race.

Chesapeake Bay. Is Fartanooga on the way to Indiana from here? Is Indiana even a real state? I have no idea where it is.

Coming from Charlotte, you go through Knoxville to Indianapolis(0-7 btw) to get to bumbleweed, in.

Knoxville is just over an hour from my house. We could meet in Knoxville.

That would be interesting to put a film crew in the backseat of that carpool with you two in there! :lmao:

Please note, the calendar poster insert in USMS Swimmer Magazine has our date incorrect... the correct date of the 5K is June 23, 2012. The USMS online calendar of events is correct.:banana:

Registered today, Thanks for the information. Hope all of you do not mind a
70 year old swimming with you.

Perhaps a very dumb question here, but how are age groups determined for USMS open water championships?

Is it like FINA, i.e., age as of the end of the year?

Or is it your age on the day of the event?

Or something else?

It would be amazingly cool to have a Geek and a Wookie in my home course! I'd probably cook you dinner if you were really nice!
