Open Water Swims.

Please arrive 15 minutes early to be ready at start time.

Join Summit Steps Coaching for open water swimming early Friday mornings on Grays Lake in Grayslake, IL. We enter the water at Jones Island Park and Beach, located near the intersection of Harvey Ave. & North Alleghany Road.


Open water swimming is an essential part or your triathlon training to experience different conditions the elements can add. Open water swimming helps you work on:

  • Your stroke
  • Drafting
  • Sighting
  • Wetsuit removal
  • and more…

For first timers this is a great learning experience and helps reduce race day anxiety during the swim segment of your triathlon.

Anyone is welcome to join us. You do not need to be a member of Summit Steps Coaching to participate. We welcome other coaches and clubs to attend.

This is a swim at your own risk event.
