SwimLabs’ Open Water Training at Grant Ranch

On any given Tuesday, Thursday, or weekend morning through September 10, swimmers can watch the sun rise from the calm water at Grant Ranch. Cheerful colored caps bob up and down as athletes acclimate to the water, which will steadily warm throughout the summer. Swimmers take advantage of the motorboat-free course and bright orange swim buoys to train for triathlons or open water races, or to vary their regular workout routine.
