Meet Courtney Paulk:  

Courtney has been an advocate of SwimRVA since it was nothing more than an idea to elevate swimming in the Richmond region.  She is one of the most decorated open water marathon swimmers in the country, if not the world.  Between 2011 and 2013 she completed the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming by swimming 21 miles across the English Channel, the 28.5 Manhattan Island Marathon swim (completed twice when only once is required), and finished it off with a 20.2 mile Catalina Channel swim.  She was the 79th individual and 29th woman in the world to ever complete this task.  Courtney is also the only one to ever complete the a solo swim of 24 miles in 24 hours during the 24 hour Swim for RVA event in 2014.

Courtney's SwimRVA Challenge:  

This year Courtney has decided to use her long distance swims to raise awareness for SwimRVA and the benefits of learning to swim.  She is doing 2 HUGE swims this year and is asking for your support while she takes on these amazing feats.  Here they are:

1.  Double Catalina Channel Swim:

The Catalina Channel, as seen below, stretches over 20 miles.  Long enough just to swim it once.  Courtney is not stopping there and from September 3-4, she will swim non-stop across the channel AND BACK!  That's over 40 miles NON-STOP!

 
   

2.  SCAR Swim Arizona Challenge:  

This 4 day challenge in Canyon Lakes in Arizona covers over 42 miles of swimming throughout 4 different lakes.  This sold out event is tough for even the best of the best!

 
   

 

Support Courtney Paulk:

Courtney set a goal to raise $20,000 and swimming in these two major long distance open-water swim challenges!
