Open Water Swimming in Colorado

If you live on the Front Range as I do you may be searching for a body of water to train on. The Chatfield Reservoir in Littleton is a great place to train. They offer two evening and one morning to swim across the 900 yard pond. To do so you must posses a COMSA (Colorado Masters Swim Association license) for info go to COMSA.ORG You also may be able to purchase a pass from the Colorado State Park. Another area that is offering open water swim training is Prospect Lake near the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, they offer a Saturday evening swim from 6-8 PM . Boulder Reservoir offers a 500 meter swim along the ropes, with an affiliation with the Boulder Masters Swimming there is access to a full open water course on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Grant Ranch in Littleton also offers open water swims clinics and a couple of swim/run races through  Mile High Multisport ….. of course you should expect a small fee to use all of these facilities . Good Luck I hope you find somewhere to train
