What is Old School Aquathon?

OSB and FS Series enjoyed hosting the aquathons for the racing community over the past four seasons. In 2015 we will not be having an official Old School Aquathon. Co-event producer One Step Beyond will host a couple completely unofficial run-swim workouts during the summer to which anyone will be welcome, provided you sign multiple waivers etcetera. :-).

You can keep up to date with One Step Beyond on the OSB Facebook page or subscribe to the One Step Beyond monthly newsletter.

Swim-run events have been called biathlons, aquathlons, splash-n-dash, and various other names over the years. We like Aquathon because it is easy to say.

Our 2014 race consists of one race on Saturday, July 12. Start time 8AM.

1000 meter swim (2x 500m loops) - 4 mile run (2x 2mile loops).

Low Key Racing
