Deep Eddy Pool

The Deep Eddy Mile (which first began in 2002) is an American Swimming Association (ASA) sanctioned competitive pool race at Austin's historic landmark Deep Eddy pool.

The race is 1766 yards and 2 feet which works out to be 53 laps of the pool. No tech suits, fins, artificial aids, etc. are allowed (and I'm assuming that also goes for floatation devices and water craft as well - which means, of course, that if I attempted this race, I would most likely drown).

The complete set of rules and registration requirements for the Deep Eddy Mile can be found here , but some of the important highlights are:

  • The race is open only to registered ASA members eighteen and older
  • Each participant must provide their own timer and someone to count/track their progress
  • Check website for registration deadline to avoid late entry registration fee (not posted at the time of this writing)
  • Registration and membership applications are mailed rather than processed online
