This is the reoccurring meetup for the weekly open water swims at Walden Pond. A well attended venue for triathletes training for races of all distances.

The gate opens at 7 a.m. and the Parking is right off of Walden St. Walden charges to park a their lot ($5) via a computerized parking attendant that takes cards. I'd recommend the annual pass if you think you're going to come to more meetups.

We will start swimming at 8:30 a.m. sharp!!

Across and back from the beach (Pictured above) is a little over a mile; a perfect distance for those training for Olympic, 70.3 and Ironman races.

There are also some close to shore routes for people getting better acquainted with open water (see distance maps). We meet near the lifeguard house right on the beach closes to Walden street. Here is the map of walden pond.

1) Always wear your wetsuit. This is for safety above all.

2) Swim in groups if you can.Always match up with someone or a group that swims your pace.


3) Make certain that you look out for each other.

4) Don't attempt to swim across the pond if you haven't trained for that distance. The beauty of Walden is that you can swim very close to shallow water and get some good open water training in.

5) If there are people that are looking to go long for the first time, let me know in advance and I may be able to swim angel, or get a swim angel group together. That way we can do it in a controlled and safe environment.

How to find us:Meet just beside the Lifeguard house in front of the stairs
