Lake Welch, Harriman State Park: Lake Welch Pkwy, Pomona, United States
The Sri Chinmoy Swim/Run in Harriman State Park in upstate New York consists of a 1 km swim at Lake Welch Beach and a 10 km run through the forest and following the shores of Lake Welch.
The Sri Chinmoy Swim-Run is part of the Sri Chinmoy Swim-Run Trio: three races staged simultaneously at Harriman State Park on Sunday, September 9th:
Through a well marked and beautiful course, home-made lunch, medals for all finishers and especially a large community of committed and encouraging volunteers we try to offer a race atmosphere where beginners and veteran athletes alike can excel and transcend their own previous limits.
This race offers an incredible opportunity for athletes who want to build on their current swim training or triathlon training programs, and is a great option for people considering beginner, mini, or sprint triathlons, minus the cycling! Overall, aquathlons are a formidable introduction to the world of multi-sport competition, and this event is certainly the perfect introduction!
Sponsored by the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team in conjunction with the NYS-OPRHP Parks System.
Race start is at 10:00 am.
Day-of-race registration and number pick-up will be open from 8:15 am - 9:30 am on Sunday, 9 September 2018.
Wetsuits are strongly encouraged. There will be a transition area, as well as a gear drop-off area available to all participants.
A post-race vegetarian picnic lunch will be provided to all participants.
