Tri Valley Masters is hosting its annual ¾ and
1.5-mile swims at the beautiful Lake Del Valle in
Livermore this Saturday morning, June 10. Race
day registration and check-in are between 6:15
and 7:30 a.m. Remember to bring your USMS card to
avoid a look-up fee.

These are wonderful races for kicking off your
open water swim season, or for beginners or less
experienced open-water swimmers. The lake is
warm, clean, and has beautiful views, plus the
courses are short.

WHAT'S MORE? TVM will feed you free food after
you swim! There will be plenty of fresh bagels,
cream cheese, home-baked goods, SmartWater,
VitaminWater and even a barbecue – all free of
because we know how much swimmers like to

.I wanted to give a heads up to all registered
PMS swimmers that we offer long course swimming
at nearly all of our workouts (with a few
exceptions in the evenings). Any swimmer from
within PMS who would like to join us for some
long course training is welcome to do so with no
commitment by purchasing a 7 Swim Pass for
$50.....the pass never expires and is good at any
of our 19 weekly workouts.

On a separate but similar note.....In addition to
our regular Saturday morning workouts, we will be
hosting some "Impromptu" long course racing every
Saturday morning in the month of May (13th, 20th,
and 27th). We'll run 20 lanes long course and
we'll race in 8 to 10 lanes. We'll race
something like four rounds of "your choice" 50m,
100m, and 200m swims. Individuals can pick and
choose what they swim. We will not offer the
800, but can probably accommodate just about
anything else. These WILL NOT be
official swims, but just some practice racing,
getting off the blocks, and quality swimming in
the competition venues for the FINA
Championships. ANYONE who is USMS registered is
welcome top join us at no charge on these days.
The workouts are from 6:00 to 7:30am. I ask
that guests arrive at
about 5:50am for set-up and warm-up. We'll run
as many heats possible with some warm-up time
before and recovery swimming mixed in-between the
rounds. Anyone interested in some fun, LOW KEY,
racing is welcome to join us!
Tim Edmunds, coach
