There is no rain date–the event is rain or shine. Of course, the pool start might have to be delayed or skipped in the event of storms; such decisions will be made that morning.


We are in need of over 50 volunteers to make this race happen. You can volunteer to help here.

Please contact the Race Director, Brian Doyle, with any questions.
