Crossing The Rappahannock

George Washington famously crossed the Delaware… and the She Crabs Triathlon group, Stripers Masters Swim Team, and VTTRunners joined together to cross the Rappahannock River early on Sunday morning, 5/24/2015.  Twenty-two swimmers were supported by just as many supporters in assorted watercraft – we are pleased to report that all who started the swim finished it in good time.  The first finisher timed the two mile swim in just over 48 mins (48:21) and the final finisher in approx 100 minutes.  Lots of great times in between.

There is some discussion of a follow up on Labor Day weekend to mark the close of summer – start training and stay tuned.
