The Global Swim Series is hosting a number of Virtual Races. Virtual Race #1 was held on June 15th 2020 with the top swimmers posted below.

Dylan Kent explains, “With open water swimming races cancelled around the world due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, the Global Swim Series has launched our very first totally virtual competition as a way to keep the GSS swimming community engaged. The virtual race is a fun, inexpensive way to compete, stay in shape and challenge yourself and others! Participate anywhere you have access to the open water.”
