Hi all,
Does anyone here participate in or know of any training groups in the Indianapolis/central Indiana area?

Further, does anyone here have any experience swimming in Eagle Creek reservoir, Geist reservoir, Morse, or other bodies of water in the Indianapolis/central Indiana area? And if so, would you care to weigh in with some pros/cons/tips regarding swimming in those bodies of water?

The 2011 USMS 25k national championship was held in Morse Reservoir. These links contain the race director's contact information.

Hi jason! You should check out the Noblesville Nasti's. We have a couple members who live on Morse Lake. Normally there are groups swimming 2-5K every Saturday and Sunday in the summer. There are some more extreme ow folks who start early spring to condition for cold water and often swim longer distances. Try IMing Dick Sidner and he will fill you in on tons of great information.
