Entries for the 26th Annual Jack King 1-mile Ocean Swim are now being accepted. The race begins at 10 a.m., not too early to make the drive that day if you live in central or northern Virginia. (Plus, after the race is done, who can say no to a relaxing day at the beach?) If you postmark your entries early — by June 5 — the entry is only $25. First through sixth places in each age group receive awards. Wetsuits are allowed, though I don’t remember anyone wearing one last year, and you won’t be eligible for an award if you wear one. Oh, and last year’s t-shirt was really cute. I’ll post a photo sometime.
Not sure you’re up for a race in the ocean, but curious? Check out Allison’s 2008 race report for an in-depth analysis of her race.
