Organiser's Description

Open Water Wednesdays at Lake Meridian Park
Kent, WA 
6:30-7:30PM
June 119 - September 11, 2024 (No swims 7/10 or 8/14)
Meet at the Picnic tables on the west side of the Lake Meridian boat launch parking lot.
 
OWW's are popular coached open water swim workouts at Lake Meridian Park in Kent, WA that  have been happening since 2006.
Participants will swim around a 300 yard buoy course in groups of similar-pace swimmers. Coach Mike Murphy will be in a kayak at the start buoy coaching an interval workout with OW skill practice during each workout.  The swims combine the fitness-building benefits of  interval workout in a pool and open water swim practice. 
 
A second coach will be near shore in a kayak working with newer open water swimmers on specific skills and helping you get acclimated. Her goal is to get you trained up and out on the buoy course with the main group as quickly as possible. 
 
Open Water Wednesdays are a great workout for any open water swimmer - you'll get valuable fitness training and can practice open water skills like sighting, turning at buoys, and swimming close to others.  This workout has the full spectrum of swimmers - from newbies to some of the fastest swimmers in the area. You'll fit right in!
 
You may sign up for one workout at a time, but we suggest signing up for 2 or more. The more workouts you sign up for, the more you'll save.
Can't make one of the dates you registered for?  No big deal - You can show up at any other workout and we can transfer that registration on the spot. No need to let us know prior to arriving. 
Not sure of your summer schedule? Sign up for the number of workouts you think you'll attend. Purchasing 9, 10, or 11 workouts cuts the price of every workout in half.
This training program is sanctioned by USA Triathlon. If you aren't an annual member of USAT, you will be required to purchase a $18 'one-day' pass. This $18 covers all the workouts you sign up for - it isn't $18 for each workout. 
See more about pricing on the "Pricing" page.
 
Wetsuits are mandatory  If you don't own a swim-specific wetsuit yet, take a look at the blueseventy line that you can find at Northwest Tri & Bike.  Swim-specific wetsuits are far superior over the general watersports wetsuits, that can actually make open water swimming harder!  Northwest Tri & Bike (less than 1 mile from the workouts) will have blueseventy wetsuits available for you to try at the workouts. These are the best suits on the market and are produced right here in Seattle, WA. Learn more on the 'Wetsuits" page. 
 
Join us for a fun summer of Wednesday evening swims!
