UPDATE: We have held out as long as we could. The river has spiked overnight to unsafe levels and history tells us that even without the forecasted rain that it will not be safe for swimming by Saturday. It is with tremendous sadness that we are therefore forced to cancel the 2015 To the Bridge & Back.
We know how hard some of you have trained for this event- life-changing training-and this is not the end you want or deserve. But this is just the beginning. The fitness you have achieved shows you that you CAN do this. Mother-Nature has been brutal to open water swimming events around the country this season but there WILL be more opportunities to reach your goals. We hope that Peluso Open Water can provide those opportunities for you.
More information about insurance claims, wristband refunds, SWAG bags and 2016 registration discounts will be detailed in an email to all participants later today. Stay safe.
