News From The Deer Creek Open Water Marathon Swim

I was surprised to get a letter and a cool window decal last week from Jim Hubbard, the Deer Creek Open Water Marathon Swim race director.

Here's what it said:

Hello Swimmer,

I'm sure you are all anxious for the warm weather to come. Some have been swimming all winter and others are beginning their workouts to prepare for the exciting open water swim. This year has the potential to be bigger and better than the last two years. We are now formally sanctioned by the Utah Masters USMS, Inc. We are very excited to have their support. I am sending out car window decals. This should be a fun way to advertise and spread the word about the swim. Word of mouth will be the most effective way of encouraging others to experience the thrill of open water marathon swimming. I can't wait to see you there!

Jim Hubbard
I have been looking forward to this year's event ever since the end of last year's event. I am hopeful that with the new sanctioning by USMS that there will be even more participants this year.
