The 45th annual 20.1 km Swim Around Key West in southernmost Florida is open to 40 solo swimmers, 5 two-person relay teams, and 10 three-person relay teams for its June 26th.

71-year-old organizer Bill Welzien [shown above] who has completed a total of 121 circumnavigation swims around Key West explains, “Additionally, we will not be offering the kayak/kayaker service this year. Those who request it will be given a list kayakers who are willing to serve as support kayakers. All relay team members must apply individually, but only one team member pays the entire team fee. Your team is not confirmed until ALL team members have filled out the online application form and the fee is paid.

The race starts and finishes on Smathers Beach on Key West.”
