The weather was perfect for our (free) club-organized event, and the jellyfish were NOWHERE to be found. The water was really calm, and the run was mostly shady. Neighbors were out on their dock cheering on the participants. We had our first Mom-Son duo this year (kudos to Wiley & Amy M); Doug P – who has completed this event every year – sustained a shoulder injury earlier in the year, so he did the run leg only.
Five brave participants attempted this annual event in 2018 – now in its 4th year! The course record still stands (1 hour, 4 mins) – but just barely! Full results can be viewed here: https://www.webscorer.com/race?raceid=140136.
Be sure to send us an email if you are interested in this FREE event. We’re local – and we’re certainly willing to cheer you on if you just feel like popping over for a practice on day (just check the tides and plan around the high tide): email@example.com.
Course Map shown here. 4.75 mile run begins at the Johnson’s house on Brush Neck Rd; right turn onto Borum Creek Rd, then right again onto VA Rte 14 (New Point Comfort Hwy). At the 3 mile point, turn right onto Hunts Road, then final right turn onto Railway Rd which dead ends at Horn Harbor Marina.
Transition to swim and follow the water course markers (large inflated ducks!) back to the cove just before Borum Creek to the Johnson’s dock.
