Harbor Springs Coastal Crawl Festival
SUNDAY -AUGUST 5TH, 2018
Back to the First Sunday in August
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.
Our new group of partners: Dan CasaSanta, Jim Kuhlman and Ashley Sigman, met recently and decided to go with the first Sunday in August.
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.
We are looking into offering a 5K trail run on Friday evening, a 10K mountain bike ride Saturday morning and then the Sunday morning open water swim.
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.
