EVENT DATE: Apr 02, 2017
Did you know that 50% of the population does not know how to swim?
As the River City we think every neighbor should be able to enjoy our natural and built environment. We envision an RVA where every child grows up with the skills to stay fit through aquatics. All money raised by the Swim for RVA event will be used to fund learn-to-swim programs. Our goal is to inspire programming in all 120 elementary schools in our region. Together we will teach every second grade child to swim in our River City!
If you competed in the 10K running event, now try your hand in the POOL! Are you ready for the SwimRVA 10K? Team up with your friends, family, or neighbors to see if you can complete 25 loops of SwimRVA's unique 400 meter "open water" style course.
In this challenge you will be asked to complete up to 25 x 400 Meter LOOPS of our uniquely designed open-water formatted pool design for a total of 10,000 meters (10K). Enjoy crystal clear water swims with the feel of open-water swimming.
