The 24 Mile Tampa Bay Marathon Swim … Coming Right Up

90 degrees and a 13 hour boat ride is one hell of a way to spend Easter. The kids and I will guide from a boat, treating this as one big practice for the English Channel.

The 24 Mile Tampa Bay Marathon Swim is an ultra-distance race that starts at the Sunshine Skyway Bridge and ends on the Courtney Campbell Causeway and covers the entire stretch of Tampa Bay. The event is held each year to celebrate Earth Day and the revitalization of Florida’s largest estuary and is the longest race that is sanctioned by United States Masters Swimming.

There will be 20 solo swimmers and 31 relay swimmers.

You can learn about the race at http://www.distancematters.com.

Their Facebook page will probably also provide updates. You can find it by searching “The 24 Mile Tampa Bay Marathon Swim.”

My Bionic Boyfriend now has a facebook page and I will attempt to make regular and fun reports via my iphone.
