Open Water River Swim

Open water river swims start on Monday, Memorial Day and go on throughout the summer.  Check the Calendar for dates and times throughout the season.  Meet at the Bradley Blvd parking lot just upstream of the Marina Vista Estates townhouse complex (the first housing complex downstream from the Shilo Inn on Bradley Blvd in Richland).  We drive upstream to a starting point and swim back down with the river current and warm hose showers in Eric’s driveway.  Times may vary, so check back to the Calendar.

IMPORTANT NOTE #1: These swims are non-lifeguard swims.  We may be lucky from time to time and have a support kayak, but don’t count on it.  The river is colder, darker, and faster than any pool you will swim in.  If you show up for these swims it means you are competent and capable of completing the swim and getting out alive without assistance from anyone else.  YOU are responsible for your safety in the water…no one else is!

IMPORTANT NOTE #2: To swim with us you must bring along a big, brightly colored floaty toy you can tether to yourself during the swim to provide maximum visibility for you (and the rest of us) to the boaters on the river.  The bigger and brighter the better.  You can find something that works at a local pool store.  No floaty means no swim with the group.

Contact Eric at sageg@charter.net with any questions.

Time Trial Series 8k

This will be an 8k trail run at the Chamna Nature Preserve. A course map will be distributed at the course or, if you choose to do the event at another time, the map can be sent by email.

We will meet at 5:30 pm and will start the time trial after a short warmup. At the end of the time trial we will record your time and, using an age-adjustment calculation, we will tally your points and use them for a series ranking. If you arent able to show up for the event, you can run the course at a different time during the same week and send us your results.

The series will consist of four different distances that will be repeated three times each for a total of 12 events. Completion of the events in the series will be recognized at a club meeting in the fall. You must be a 3RRR member to be eligible for the award.

Girls on the Run Southeast WA Spring 5k

Join us for our Girls on the Run Spring 5k! We invite community runners to come and celebrate the accomplishments of our 400+ local girls who will be completing the end-of-season 5k. Many are first-time runners, and we need many people to come and support them, and encourage them to continue running throughout their lives. Role models of all kinds are needed!

Our 5k will begin at 9:00am at Columbia Point Marina Park. We will begin at Columbia Point and run up the bike path to the turnaround at Howard Amon Park. We will have a staggered start to accommodate all of our girls and participants.

We encourage community runners to volunteer as 5k Buddies, who are partnered with one girl and run with her, encouraging her along the way. All 5k Buddies are background checked prior to the race.

Registration will open April 29 through our website at www.gotrsewa.org Thank you!
