The Waikiki Roughwater Swim Committee is formally cancelling the 2020 edition of the Looong Distance Invitational Rough-H2O Swim aka the Double Roughwater. This decision is based on the current restrictions on social gatherings and group events in the City & County of Honolulu, the likelihood of a continuing travel restrictions both to and within the State of Hawaii, and the desire of the committee to encourage safety within the athletic community. New Race Director and President of the Ala Moana Beach Swim Club, Ryan Leong, promises that the 2021 race will be “bigger and better”. He notes that even though there is no racing this year, “all swimmers should keep training for next season”. The Committee encourages Hawaii residents to continue to take advantage of the open water swimming opportunities available around and between the islands. For our friends on the mainland, we can only say, we hope to see you soon and we wish you were here!!
The 2021 Looong Distance Invitational Rough-H2O is tentatively set for Saturday October 16, 2021.
