That’s right, you can compete in events from the 100 backstroke race to a 1/2 mile freestyle swim in a pond in the Pocomoke Open Water Swim Meet in Pocomoke City, MD on Saturday, September 13, 2008. Swimmers will compete for the “coveted Wesley cup.”
Pocomoke City is a bit of a hike from the Richmond area, but if you’re looking for a late-summer-aquatic challenge that’s shorter and easier to get into than, say, the Bay Swim, without the constraints of a pool, it may be the perfect event for you. Participants can swim as many events as they’d like for only $25. If you’d like to bring along your family, the pond area also has a huge inflatable slide and trampoline for added enjoyment.
