The upcoming Great Salt Pond Annual Swim on Block Island will take place at 11:00 a.m. on July 28th. This is a one-mile swim, which brings people of all swim abilities together since this is not a timed event or a race. You will find triathletes, college/ex-college swimmers, leisurely swimmers, and those who are there to socialize with their friends with the use of inner tubes, snorkels, fins, and kick boards.
The Great Salt Pond Swim 4 is a fundraiser for the Committee for the Great Salt Pond, in addition to creating awareness of the Great Salt Pond. This swim will help protect the Pond by providing funds to do additional water testing in the recreational swimming area, keeping the Pond clean, and keeping marine life healthy. This is the fourth year for this event, which is limited to 150 swimmers.
You can sign up for the swim online at www.cgspblockisland.org – click "2018 Swim" (where you will find a participant packet), or on Active.com. The registration fee is $55 and online registration will close July 27th at 11 p.m. Registration is also available on site until 10 a.m. the day of the swim. Come swim on July 28th and experience the Great Salt Pond.
