MIMS - Mercer Island Marathon Swim - Friday June 8, 2018 by NOWSA
After a successful "test" swim last summer, the Northwest Open Water Swimming Association is again hosting "MIMS" (Mercer Island Marathon Swim) on Friday, June 8.
Mercer Island sits in Lake Washington just outside Seattle. Distance around = 20k, no current, temperature hopefully in the mid-60s, conditions almost always predictable, and on a sunny day, the scenery is spectactular.
Registration (application process) opens Monday, January 15. First-come, first-serve. We'll take approx. 24 applications and then select 12 swimmers by the end of February. Price is $700 for a solo spot (includes support boat). Inquire if you wish to swim with a relay team.
Additional details about the event, are available an our website, which is where the registration link will be posted tomorrow morning at approx 6 am PST.
Feel free to post questions here, or contact me via email: racedirector 'at' northwestopenwater.org.
Thanks for the interest. Looking forward to seeing you in June!!
