Go Nuclear

Raleigh, North Carolina on the east coast of the US is the site of three 1-mile swims. The 5280 Swim is on April 18th, the Jordan Lake Open Water Challenge is on June 7th and the Nuclear Swim is on August 30th.

The home state of multiple national champion and 2005 world 10K champion Chip Peterson, the 3-part series looks forward to growing the sport with a goal of offering small prize purses in the future. Like an increasing number of other open water swims across the US, the 5280 Swim is held concurrently with a triathlon so the two events can share race courses, safety personnel and event operations.
