Open Water Swim | CHICAGO

This program was launched in 2012 to help new triathletes experience open water swimming in a safe, non-intimidating environment. These events provide participants with expert coaching, gear check, wetsuit rental opportunities, life guard support and post-event socials with fellow participants and coaches. Since inception, more than 13,000 participants have directly enhanced their swim abilities from these clinics.

While we’re best known for developing aspiring adults, OWS Chicago also serves experienced triathletes looking to refresh their skills and/or push themselves with fellow enthusiasts. Veterans often enroll in the Swim-On-Your-Own or Competitive Aquathlon options. Full details can be found here.

Registration is now open for a nominal $20 fee. Event capacity is limited to 150 participants per session, many of which will sell-out. Participants must be 18 years or older. Due to capacity restrictions, there are no-refunds or transfers allowed. Participants must be able to tread water on their own, comfortably place their face under the surface, and maintain some level of forward propulsion to enroll.
