About the Series
Three epic events come together as one series to fulfill the need to improve Open Water Swimming in South Florida. Three premiere cities, one amazing series!
Open Water Swimming is a sport that has experienced massive growth recently due to the huge success of the sport of Triathlon. There are now more than 900 open water swims worldwide, annually. From stroking to drafting, open water swimming is a full body workout. (Races will include Half Mile, One Mile, 5K, and 10K distances)
We decided to launch The Swim Series to provide three unique courses and conditions to challenge novice to advanced swimmers:
- Swim Fort Lauderdale: The first stop is during the winter to provide a rough and cold water experience.
- Swim Miami: The original calm water experience like the Olympics and an opportunity for every kind of swimmer to try open water swimming.
- Swim Miami Beach: The wild card race at the end of the summer where weather is completely unpredictable and the water can be warmer than swimmers may be used to.
The Swim Series is an effort to grow the sport of Open Water Swimming in South Florida and create a movement and awareness about drowning prevention and eradication.
