I’m based in NYC and am looking ahead to 2023 to see if I can find a ~10 mile swim to train for. I thought I remember reading that CIBBOWS does member swims that are sometimes in this distance range. Is that true? If so, does anyway know roughly when those swims occur during the year?
Relatedly, does anyone have suggestions for swim events (in or outside the region) that are around 5-10 miles?
I’m looking to put down a rough date in my mind to focus my training efforts.
Thanks for the help!
Lake George Open-Water Swim offers a 10km (~6.2 miles). I’ve done the 5K and 2.5K, one pre and one
post-pandemic. The race was well-organized, the people were extremely welcoming and accomodating, and the waters of Lake George are incomparably beautiful. Well worth the trek to north Lake George! https://lakegeorgeswim.com/
You can also look in quebec, google “Eau Libre”
It’s about an 8 hour drive from NYC and food can be pretty amazing.
You can stay in a Gite (quebecois B&B but less fussy & expensive)
and stop off in Montreal, Quebec City or Ottawa – all nice cities to visit.
