This annual event combines a 4.75 mile run and 0.85 mile open water swim, and is also known as “Beat The Jellies.” It is timed strategically in June or early July: before the jellyfish arrive in Chesapeake Bay making the swim portion no fun! This event starts & finishes at the Johnson’s house (272 Brush Neck Rd, Port Haywood) with the transition at Horn Harbor Marina.
