Registration for the 2023 Swim the Suck opens tomorrow at 12 noon ET. http://www.swimthesuck.org/register
I did this last year and had a blast, but I don't know anyone doing it this year, so I'm on the fence about whether to sign up again.
Are any of you planning to register? I need peer pressure to do it.
I'll be there. Looking forward to it.
Keep moving forward.
I'm in! Who else is coming to the MSF Homecoming?!
We're all just carbon, water, starlight, oxygen and dreams
I would love to do this but I too don't know a single sole.
I registered. If you sign up, you'll know me there!
Thank you @sarahcassidy! I did it! I click the orange button! I'm in for 2023!
Woo Hoo.. Now I just have to maintain. This has been on my bucket list for awhile.
Any recommendation on places to stay? Or areas I should focus on trying to stay?
Plus can I just uber/lyft my way around or do I need a car?
Woohoo! I sent you a message. Last year was my first time at Swim the Suck. I stayed at the Holiday Inn in downtown Chattanooga and liked it but I don't think I saw other swimmers staying there? Downtown is great for walking instead of driving, and the pre-race dinner was there which made it convenient. I might try to stay downtown again but haven't decided yet. I'd like to know what hotel(s) other swimmers are staying at.
As for a car, it depends what airport you fly into. Chattanooga was SO expensive to fly into from Las Vegas so I ended up flying into Knoxville and splitting a rental car with another MSF swimmer. I just set up flight alerts for Chattanooga and nearby airports including Atlanta, Nashville, Knoxville, Huntsville, and Birmingham. Prices seem higher than they were last year so I'll wait to book.
A rental car would make getting to the race location easier since it's in the woods outside the city, and I have no idea how difficult it would be to get an Uber/Lyft out there on race morning so I hope others weigh in. I have wondered about getting a ride from other swimmers. If I fly into another city I'll rent a car and am more than happy to give rides so I can meet more MSF swimmers.
I'm going and so is Reptile!! So you do know more than a single soul.
