Swim The South River 5 Mile in 2020 — SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2020!

Swim-the-South-River

. . . Coming in October 2020!

Swim the South River is a 5-mile swim course designed for athletes to complete solo or with partner(s)! Relay pods take turns swimming and paddling on a SUP (relax, you can sit on a paddle board, too!) 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. We are a gathering of novice & accomplished athletes swimming without the allure of podiums or course records, but for the Joys of the wild, open water experience!

GET INVOLVED BY GIVING & PROMOTING
