Swim Incentive

Swim Across the Solar System!

Why RUN a marathon when you could SWIM one? For the Spring Swim Incentive, we are swimming the Boston Marathon course. Your goal is to finish before the actual marathon starts on April 14, 2014.




  • Begin at the starting line in Hopkinton and make your way toward downtown Boston, moving your running shoe icon as you swim the distances between each mile marker.
  • Keep track of your own distance and email every time you reach another mile!
  • Once you reach the finish line, try to swim back!
  • The top 2 finishers (one male and one female) will receive a prize!
