About This Activity

Open Water Swim October

October will be the final month for the Open Water Swim at Keystone State Park fro the 2014 season.

No Boundaries Fitness along with American Adventure Sports will be hosting these swim practices the 2nd Sunday of each month through October.

The course is setup on a one mile oval just outside the roped beach area. Swimmers can swim any distance from, 1/10 of a mile to 2.4 miles. We will have safety kayakers and also safety swimmers in the water during the entire event.

New swimmers as well as experienced swimmers are welcome to attend. This is not a timed event, the main purpose is to give local swimmers the ability to get out into the open water and train under race type conditions.

Event schedule and times

Please plan to arrive 1/2 hour before your scheduled swim time to confirm your reserved spot, there will be a mandatory pre-swim meeting 15 minutes prior to swimmers getting in the water. Any spots still open at the pre-swim meeting will be released to waiting list swimmers. Participants can swim for one hour picking either the 10:00 or 11:00 AM time slots. If swimmers want to swim in both sessions they must register for both.

A picture ID will be required to be left with your registration and waiver form. You will get your photo ID back after exiting the swim area. Colored swim caps will also be provided and must be worn at all times. All event details will be reviewed at the pre-swim meeting.

Wetsuits are permit based on the water temperature. If you need to rent a wetsuit, AAS will have some available the day of the swim.
