Route and Distance:

The swim route and distance is determined on the beach prior to entry and depends on the training needs and abilities of the participants involved.

Important information:

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND reading the USMS Open Water manuals for safety and workout tips at

IT IS IMPORTANT that you wear a bright colored swim cap for high visibility. This is for your safety and the ability of all swimmers to see each other in the water.

Optional items to bring are a swimming wetsuit, a neoprene swim cap, a warm drink in a thermos for before and after the swim, body glide to reduce chaffing, a gallon jug of warm water to rinse off with, and warm clothes for after the swim.

Please note that this training opportunity is independent and at your own risk. This workout is for intermediate to advanced ability level swimmers who want to train together for various events. PLEASE make sure you have adequate pool workout time before attempting Open Water swimming.

Non Rincon Triathlon Club members will be required to sign a liability waiver prior to participation. You can print and sign a copy of the waiver (attached to the membership application) available to download from the membership info page of our website We will try to have extra waivers on hand.

Feel free to send out a hotflash if you are planning on riding your bike up to Carp or planning a run afterwards and looking for company!!
