Open Water River Swim – note this swim is at Chiawana Park

This swim will be at Chiawana Park to practice the Power of Pasco Sprint Triathlon Swim course.  Meet at the parking lot at the downstream end of the park.

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

Event starts at Trailhead Park at the base of Badger Mountain. The course goes to the top by way of Canyon Trail. At the top, turn right and go along the access road until reaching Skyline Trail. At Skyline Trail, go left and take that trial until it meets Sagebrush Trail. Take Sagebrush Trail back down to the park and add a loop on Badger Flats to complete the roughly 4.5-mile course.

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.
