Yes, we said the Milwaukee River.
We are incredibly excited to tell you about a project that has been in the works for almost a year now. In partnership with Milwaukee Riverkeeper and Harbor District, we are holding the city’s first ever open water swim in the Milwaukee River. The event is officially sanctioned by US Masters Swimming and we are working with the US Coast Guard and the Milwaukee Marine Police to ensure a safe experience for swimmers, viewers, and others on the river that day. There will be lifeguards, an EMT, and safety kayakers on duty during the race as well.
