GO THE DISTANCE
A new fitness event was created this year by the USMS Fitness
Committee. The name of this new challenge is "Go the Distance"!
This is a great way to track how much distance you cover during the
year (or the next six months).
The objective of this event is for participants to track the distance
they swim during the year 2007. When participants achieve specific
distance milestones of 50 miles, 100 miles, 250 miles, 500 miles, 750
miles and 1000 miles - they will be recognized on the USMS website
and awards will be available for purchase (for a minimal fee).
There is no cost to enter this event. Participants are requested to
email (or use snail mail) to submit the total distance they swim each
month. A list of miles per month and cumulative mileage will be
tabulated for each swimmer. Once a distance milestone is achieved
awards will be available for purchase. They will include swim caps,
certificates, patches and t-shirts with the event logo and the
distance of the milestone achieved.
