South Florida Swim Series coming in 2017
MIAMI, FL – The South Florida Swim Series hits the shores of Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Miami Beach in 2017. The 3-part swim series will serve as the premier open water swim circuit in the state of Florida. Consisting of Swim Fort Lauderdale Beach, Swim Miami and Swim Miami Beach, these events will provide picturesque views, extreme competition and family friendly fun for all ages.
The first annual Swim Fort Lauderdale Beach will be headquartered in Fort Lauderdale Beach park and consist of a one-mile swim and a Kids Race. This will kick off the South Florida swim series and provide swimmers with an opportunity to swim in rough and cold conditions and prepare them for the start of the 2017 open water swim season.
Swim Miami will be returning to its original home: The Miami Marine Stadium and will provide swimmers the opportunity to choose between an 800M, Miami Mile, 5K or 10K swims along with the return of the K-9 Krawl, the only race where dog and owner team up together to swim 400 yards and run half a mile. This calm water race will remind you of what you watched in the Olympics.
Swim Miami Beach will be heading back to the North Beach Bandshell for the 3rd annual race. This race is our wild card and you never know what you’ll get. If you like to be unpredictable, this is the race for you and could be a warmer race than you’ve ever experienced before. In addition, plan to have the whole family come with you as it serves as the Kickoff to the Annual Miami Beach Fit Fest.
This dynamite swim series is what everyone is talking about and is great for all ages and abilities. All events will have sponsor expos and support the H2Os Foundation, dedicated to eliminating drowning in South Florida.
