Tired of the same ole' Turkey Trots? Try the Fall Fitness Challenge, a 1-mile swim that takes place between November 15-30, which is the third event in the SmartyPants Vitamins USMS Fitness Series.

Whether you're just getting into swimming, starting back into it after a long time away from the pool, pushing to see how fast you can go, or just wanting to donate to the USMS Swimming Saves Lives Foundation, the Fall Fitness Challenge is the perfect event for you to finish the year strong. The Fall Fitness Challenge can be done in any manner desired: straight through, as a member of a relay, or even with fins. 

If you need help preparing for this swim, we have six-week training plans for all types of swimmers.


Nov. 15-30


Check Club Finder for a club in your area, find some friends to swim with, or swim on your own. This challenge can be completed in any pool across the world!
