- Tulsa Swim - this is a new event on August 19 in Bristow, Oklahoma, near Tulsa. The event has numerous distance options: 500m, 2000k, 4000k. You can also combine the 500m with either the 2000k or 4000k (the "Doubler" option).
- Snapping Tortuga - this is the second year for this 500m/2.5k/5k swim in Conroe, Texas, north of Houston. This year's event will be held on October 14. We just came back from "The Snap is Back," another 500m/2.5k/5k event in the same location and put on by the same race director. They are fun, well-organized events that you will definitely want to check out.
