Kenneth Rippetoe wrote -The Great Relay is the biggest, longest distance relay competition in the United States. Teams of 8 or more see how fast they can swim as a relay for 5,000 yards/meters. There are many different types of teams that can compete to be ranked and receive recognition nationally: types of swim teams (summer league, high school, club, etc), pool lengths, and more. It is a fundraising event that will help the Inglewood High School Swim Team and One with the Water raise critical money to support Trident Swim Foundation's inner city Swimmer Scholar program at Inglewood High School. The Trident Swim Foundation (www.tridentswimfoundation.org) runs The Great Relay around the country to encourage fun competition in swimming and to raise awareness of the need for better swim lessons, competitive swim teams, and academic support in the inner cities of America.
