Welcome to the Jim McDonnell Lake Swims and Open Water Clinic. JMLS is a two-day event held each year over Memorial Day weekend in beautiful Lake Audubon in Reston, VA.

Now in our 25th year, we are continuing to enhance our offerings to make it an exciting experience for our swimmers. The event includes a 5K race followed by an open water clinic and 1-mile practice swim on Saturday and 1- and 2-mile competitive races on Sunday.

Jim McDonnell Lake Swims are Sanctioned by Potomac Valley LMSC for USMS, Sanction #102-W001.

Hope to see everyone on May 26-27.
