  • This looks great! What's the approximate water temp that time of year?

    (BTW, Bryson City is misspelled on the flyer.)

    Just saw on the Swim Without Limits site that the date has changed to July 20, 2019 because they had a conflict with the race venue on the originally communicated date of June 22. Bummer. Wish it were held in June!
