HARBOR AREA RECREATION AND ENTERTAINMENT
SUNDAY -AUGUST 5TH, 2018
Back to the First Sunday in August
1/2, 1, 2, 3 MILE OPEN WATER SWIM and KIDS 1/2 MILE SWIM
ZORN PARK, Harbor Springs, Michigan
We are returning to the first Sunday in August. Many of you may not know why we went the 2nd Sunday in August this year. Marilyn and I retired from running the event 3 years ago. We have a tight group of friends that go to various masters national championship meets. Two years ago we started planning to attend the 2017 long course nationals in Minneapolis. Then this past winter the Hammerheads decided to quit offering the Coastal Crawl and we found some new people to help us run the event and to keep it going. But we needed to change the date since nationals conflicted this summer.
We are adding a new event, the Adult 1/2 mile open water swim. The awards will be limited for this event. The event is being offered to get those adults that aren't sure about making the 1 mile swim and might be comfortable doing the 1/2 mile. Intended for new participants.
We have decided to not offer the trail run or mountain bike ride this year as part of the coastal crawl events.
We will offer a casual run and/or ride. If you are interested in participating in one or both contact John at CoastalCreawl@gmail.com. Both events will start at the Meadow on Warwick Road just west of the end of Emmet Heights Rd.
There are other activities we are considering and will keep you posted (a free post race raffle of locally donated items might be one)
Looking forward to 2018.
