For folks in South Central PA: In case you're looking for an OWS only event and/or want to practice your OWS racing skills, regular pricing has been extended through May 20 for the 2nd Annual Ft Ritchie Swim Fest in Lake Royer, Cascade MD. This consists of 3 OWS distance events: 750m, 1500m, & 2250m. You can sign up for one or all three. The male winner of each event did just that too - what a machine!
I have not participated in the swim fest, however I have done a few of Racine's races. Good events. Not over the top w/ swag or post race food, but I have found the events to be very family & athlete friendly. The events are well run.
