Preparations are underway for the 4th annual “Race for the Conch” Eco-SeaSwim set for Saturday morning July 6, 2013. The charity event takes place on the beach in front of Ricky’s Flamingo Cafe and will feature 1 mile, 2.4 mile swim races and a 100 meter Children’s Swim.
Event participation from Provo and abroad continues to grow, and this year we have confirmed swimmers coming from as far away as Perth, Australia and Switzerland! Proceeds from the race will go to Provo Children’s Home, Salvation Army, and Reef Fund. Sponsors Welcome! Please tell you front desk staff and concierges about the race so that they can direct interested guests to swim location at Rickyʼs Flamingo Cafe. Race details are at: www.ecoseaswim.com.
As last year, we will also offer a Resort Cup competition. Participating resorts can enter 3 (or more) of their best swimmers in the 1 mile race (which starts promptly at 10 am–check-in at 9 am). The best combined time for the resort team will be the winner of a Resort Cup conch trophy and, of course, bragging rights. Resorts can enter more than 3 swimmers to increase their odds, but only top 3 times will count towards the team time. Note: Each swimmer on the team must be a full time employee of the resort or resort company Regent Palms is the Defending Champion. We hope that several resorts will enter teams to compete for this prestigious trophy.
