Monster Mile Conquered!

Highlander Aquatic got up early to join Daytona Beach Swimming for the 3rd Annual Monster Mile.

The swimmers first had to run a half mile on land before diving into the surf of the Atlantic and challenge the waves (and each other) to be the fastest miler. Then, the event was finished off with another half mile run to the finish line.

The winners of the fun event were Viktor Toth (DBS) and Caroline Cooper (HIGH).
