Swim the South River is a 5 mile swim course designed for athletes to complete solo or with a partner! Pairs take turns swimming and paddling while solo swimmers enjoy the river with their own paddle assist. The mission of the event is to promote open water swimming and to support the preservation efforts of the Arundel Rivers Federation (formerly known as the South River Federation). We are a gathering of novice and accomplished swimmers swimming without the allure of podiums or course records, but for the Joys of the wild, open water experience!
Solo Swimmers may provide their own paddlers and borrow a boat (limited available). Relay swimmers may also borrow a boat as they remain available! Event fees are $200 for solo participants and relay swimmers share in that same fee. Solo swimmers wanting a pairing with a paddler and boat may be accommodated for an additional fee of $60. Wetsuits, pull buoys, fins, paddles, snorkels, tempo trainers, rotation belts, are all welcome 🙂 This is intended to be fun! Relays mix it up as you like either by time or distance. Everyone wears a waist belt buoy (provided). Swim Start Time is 7 AM. Check-IN begins 6 AM. More details will post as the clock starts ticking down!
Are you interested in helping? WONDERFUL! We need your help! From supporting swimmers by paddling to helping direct traffic and setting up hospitality, there is a role for you to play!
