2008 USMS fitness event “Go the Distance” (GTD)

The objective of this event is for participants to track the distance they swim during the year. When participants achieve the specific distance milestones of 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 365.25 (average mile a day), 400, 500, 750, 1000, 1250 and 1500 miles – they will be recognized on the USMS website and awards will be available for purchase (for a minimal fee).

There is no cost to enter this event. Participants are requested to email (or use snail mail) to submit the total distance they swim each month. A list of miles per month and cumulative mileage will be tabulated for each swimmer. Once a distance milestone is achieved awards will be available for purchase. They will include swim caps, certificates and patches with the event logo and the distance of the milestone achieved. At the end of the year customized awards will be available. There is also apparel and goodies with the GTD logo on it available to all participants from our online store. The awards order form and information regarding our online store is available on the USMS website. Each month the results will be updated on the USMS website in the Fitness Section. There will be lists to recognize all those that have achieved each distance milestone as well as the current month achievements. Other lists include the mileage for all participants sorted by gender, age group and USMS club / lmsc / zone. In addition there will be graphs illustrating the participation for each zone, lmsc, workout groups, age groups and gender.

The entry form, monthly results, awards order form and a “distance tracking log” is available on the USMS website (fitness section) at:
