Open Water Program


Open Water Practice

The Peluso Open Water Program will get you prepared for your open water race. The program includes coached group open water swims every week and three open water races 2015 dates will be announced in January. All Friday workouts will take place at 4800 Welby Turn, Midlothian, VA 23113 which is home to the American Legion Post 354 near James River High School.

Open Water Workouts:

These alternate from Friday to Wednesday each week. 2015 dates will be announced in January. Calendar

Alternating Friday Workouts: 6-7pm at American Legion Post 354
Early in the season we start with swims of 30-35 minutes of open water endurance swimming sets. During the season, we will progress to longer swims for those swimming in longer events up to 4-5000meters. This workout will serve as your long swim of the week.

Alternating Wednesday Workouts: 6 -7pm (6:30pm from July-Sept) at Lake Salilsbury
During these workouts we will set a course, marked by smaller buoys. These workouts are a combination of open water skills, intervals and endurance training. 

You do not have to swim the entire workout and are welcome to cut your swim short if your ability or time constraints require you to do so.

Inclement Weather:

In the event we have predicted inclement weather or water conditions we will make a cancellation determination by 5pm the day of the swim. Notices will be posted on our Facebook page, Twitter feed and the home page of our website. If there is no notice posted, the swim will be held as scheduled. 


All of our open water workouts are available to drop-in and try. You will sign a liability waiver on site and pay the drop-in fee when you arrive. There is no need to pre-register.

Open Water Races:

There is no better way to train for an open water race than with an open water race. We strongly encourage our open water program athletes to participate in the HCA, Va Open H2O Race Series, powered by Peluso Open Water. Each of the these races presents a unique open water challenge.
