    Up to 15 swimmers will join our coaches for a  long distance  swim of 3 plus miles from Aquatic Park to the Warming Hut . Our coaches will give some tips and guide you along the way. On this swim, you will be introduced to the idea of fueling and hydrating while doing longer distance swims.  Please bring 1 water bottle filled with water or some type of sports drink that you want to experiment with.  Please make sure your bottle is easily identifiable (your name in sharpie, bright colored, etc...).  Also, bring one solid food source that you would like to experiment with.  Cut up pieces of a favorite sports bar are popular items.  The food should be inside of a Ziplock bag with you name clearly indicated on the bag. This will be a great way to get some extra distance in for those getting ready for our longer swims like Swim Around the Rock , Bridge to Bridge or another relay.
