The Annual Columbus Day Classic swim competition will take place on Saturday, October 12th at the newly renovated Woodrow Wilson Aquatic Center. This is one of DC’s premier indoor aquatic facilities and is conveniently located one block from the Tenleytown-AU Metro Station’s Red Line.

WilsonThe swim competition will take place in short course yards, with separate lanes available for warm up and warm down. Warm ups will take place from 9:00am to 9:50am and the meet will start promptly at 10:00am. Competitors may enter up to four individual events for a $30 flat fee and relays (men, women & mixed) will be offered (at no cost).
