Swim Event This Weekend in Brasilia.

Swim Competition

I wanted to make families aware of a community event that will take place in Brasilia this weekend.  A BIG swim team (including myself) is set to take place as part of the 25h Swim Relay this weekend in Brasilia. This is a really fun competition. The goal is to keep your team relay going for 25h straight! Our team (those that wish to join me) will be recognized as "Raia 10." This competition will take place at the Olympic size pool (50 meters) at Centro Olímpico da Universidade de Brasília (UnB). The minimum requirement is that you must be able to swim 100 meters (1 lap). You don't have to go fast but must be able to complete a lap. Once the lap is completed, the swimmer will take brief  rest and repeat the process.  Our team will do that all day and all night (if desirable)!            

Remember: You don't have to stay for the whole 25h.  Therefore, when you sign up, the officials will ask you to choose a time of the day that you would like to swim. The event will begin at 10am on Saturday (23rd) and end at 11am on Sunday (24th).

I will be there from 9:30am to 11:45am on Saturday. We encourage everyone to come swim at that time and join me for the fun!  This is not a school sponsored event and everyone will need to provide transportation.  However, it will certainly prove to be a great time for those that wish to attend.  We apologize for the short notice but wanted to ensure everyone (if able) could attend the event.

You may sign up when you arrive at the pool at UnB. The cost is only R$10 per person.
