Need to get in shape for the summer? Try the Summer Fitness Challenge, a 2K swim that takes place between July 15-31, and the second event in the SmartyPants Vitamins USMS Fitness Series.

This event is designed for anyone who is looking to get in shape for their summer vacation. Whether you're just getting into swimming or back into it after a long time away from the pool, swimming a 2K is an excellent fitness goal. The Summer 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.

Find a Summer Fitness Challenge Near You

You’ll have fun training for and completing the Challenge with your club, getting motivation from each other and your coach. If you swim on your own, you can still join a group for the Challenge! The USMS programs listed below will be participating and hosting an official Summer Fitness Challenge at their pool. 

If you don't see a program near you, talk to your coach or club contact about hosting a Summer Fitness Challenge at your pool. Bring your club or workout group together for an inclusive and fun challenge!
