Same day as Swim for Life in Chester, MD. (That's quite the day of swimming):
"The annual Chris Greene Lake swim will be held Saturday, July 14, in Charlottesville. We're offering both 1-mile and 2-mile distances this year. We also offer a "one-event" membership for triathletes or others who are not USMS members. Our race is affordable ($25 for the 1-mile swim, $40 for the 2-mile), and the cable swim is a great setting for newbies to get introduced to open water. We don't do mass starts; instead, we start in waves of 10 people, with 30 seconds between waves.
The 2-mile race is at 8:30am, with the 1-miler is at 10:30am.
