    2020 Open Water Virtual Grand Slam

    With most open water events either cancelled or postponed for the summer, checkout the 2020 Open Water Virtual Grand Slam!

    Only three days into registration, we have 30 swimmers signed up from around the world including Sweden, Germany, Australia, Canada and the USA (even Alaska). It's a bargain at $15.

    Without going into too much detail in this thread, the aim of this event is to gradually start swimming again and test yourself when you’re able to get back into the water regularly; hence the STAGES: Sprint (800M), Olympic (1500M), Half (1.9K) and Full (3.8K). There is a wetsuit and a skins category.

    Registration is LIVE at Club Assistant. Just click on the link below to learn more and sign up:

    What a fun idea and great way to get back into the groove gradually. I'm so bummed that the nearest, swimmable open water is over an hour away. Sigh... someday...

    The Grand Slam is still going strong...After Stage One (800M) we have 200+ swimmers representing 13 countries and 26 states. We have all levels of swimmers from Olympic Trials, English Channel Crossers, Forumites, and novice triathletes. EVERYONE is welcome regardless of age, affiliation, nationality, or skill level.

    Even though you missed Stage One, your can back-fill that distance and complete the Virtual Grand Slam (800M, 1500M, 1930M, and 3860M).

    Join the fun through this link at Club Assistant.
