This year's Madison Open Water Swim (MOWS) will be August 22 in Lake Monona, in beautiful downtown Madison, Wisconsin. It is on the same course as Ironman Wisconsin which takes place almost exactly two weeks later.

Although we had great success with our first-ever National Championship we are trying to make this even better. This year we will be using Club Assistant for online entries. Here is a link to that online form: There will be no mail-in registrations. There will be positive check-in with personal id and USMS card. T-shirts will again be offered for $15 each. Awards will be given to the winners of each age group for wetsuit and non-wetsuit.

If you have any other questions please e-mail me or call Dick Pitman, Meet Director, 608-770-2307; Or, Jerry Lourigan, Race Registrar, 608-221-8167,
