The IPK Memorial Swim is a sanctioned event held in the memory of Irene Pawley-Kennedy. Wetsuits are allowed. With three different distances offered, this is a great starter open water event for rookies as well as for seasoned open water swimmers. Rookies, kids, and swimmers who might be a little anxious about leaving the black line of the pool behind will find the shorter courses along the beach to be a great introduction to open water swimming.
Irene Pawley Kennedy grew up as a competitive gymnast but discovered her love for swimming as an adult. She participated in open water swimming as well as pool competitions – her love of distance events was well known to all. Irene was a great friend and team member on the Milford Athletic Club (MAC) Masters Team as well as coaching many age group swimmers on the Huron Valley Penguins.
