Campus Recreation annually challenges the TU community to "Swim 2..." in Burdick Pool. Each year, a new location is chosen, and participants are challenged to swim the distance to that location from Towson.
For this year’s Swim 2 Challenge, swimmers are headed to Bora Bora!
Bora Bora is just over 6,000 miles away from Towson. We put our thinking caps on and came up with the following breakdown:
70 lengths = 35 laps
35 laps = 1 mile
1 mile swam = 100 miles to Bora Bora
60 miles swam = 6,000 miles to Bora Bora = Mission Accomplished!
You will swim the distance from Towson to Bora Bora (approximately 6,000 miles) using the conversions listed above. All participants who successfully swim the required distance through May 6 will receive a mystery prize from Campus Recreation! For an additional challenge, you can swim back! Check progress on the distance log outside of the Lifeguard Office.
Sign up with a lifeguard during open swim hours. During open swim hours, track and report your swim distance to the lifeguard on duty immediately after completing it.
