Walmart OZ Mile Swim is for ALL swimmers! Elite, experienced, novice, beginner - ALL!
The Walmart OZ Mile Swim is an open water race that offers participants and spectators a full weekend in Northwest Arkansas with festivities centered around swimming. This will be a great weekend in the heart of the Ozark on beautiful Beaver Lake with fun for the entire family!
Bonnie Adams, founder of SWIM OZ, created this race because she wanted to showcase the natural beauty of the Ozark region and offer an opportunity for her clients and team to be able to compete locally. There are so many amazing things that this area offers athletes, and it is time to put us on the map for swimming events as well. There is a very eclectic swimming population here in Northwest Arkansas. A lot of former Division 1 swimmers, Ironman triathletes, recreational swimmers, high school state champions, para-athletes, and special Olympic athletes all reside here. The 1-mile swim offers ALL of them the opportunity to participate. Adams had this to say regarding the event, “The diversity of our participants is awesome – so glad we have a grass roots start to an inclusive event. When we sat down to create this event, we wanted something for everyone. We also wanted this to be a race that the spectators would want to attend.” The course is a triangle shape with complete viewing for the spectators to see their swimmer the entire race.
We want to build community around swimming. Details are in the works and will be released as soon as they are finalized!
