Event Details

If you are new to swimming and perhaps a little nervous, you can swim close enough into the shore where you will be able to stand if needed. Additionally, you can practice running out of the water. It is also home to many local triathlons so it is good to get a little practice here.

Should a water quality advisory be in place, the group swim is automatically canceled. You can still swim if you like, but the official COTC swim will not happen. Sites monitoring Alum Creek water quality:

Meet in the parking lot closest to the south shelter (furthest from the entrance).

GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR SWIMS
Anyone participating in COTC swims must sign a waiver.
All members swimming as part of Monday night group swims must sign in and out.
No one under 18 can swim with the group unless a parent is in the water with them.
There is an inherit risk to open water swimming and members are encouraged to wear a wet suit or bring a noodle/other floating device.
Wearing a bright-colored swim cap is recommended.
Group swim cancellation will be made by 4:30 p.m. on the day of the swim.
The group swim is canceled if water quality advisories are in effect.
