Aqua Run 1K - April 22, 2017

April 22, at the New York Sports Club in Livingston NJ, The Lipedema Queen (TLQ) Organization is having an Aqua Run 1K Charity Marathon fundraiser, that I am proud to be participating in.

What is an Aqua Run, you ask?

Good question, I had not heard of one before Katia Page (the founder of TLQ) asked me to participate. It is an event where you run (or walk) 1000 meters in a pool. The NYSC pool, where this will take place, is a 25M pool (or, as we learned last year in preparation for the Lipedema Triathlon, a short distance olympic sized pool). 

1000M Race / 25M Pool = 40 lengths of the pool, or 20 laps. It takes place in the shallow end Katia said, so your feet are in contact with the pool floor, as opposed to treading water in the deep end.

I say if you want to come watch, bring a poncho, there is going to be a whole lot of splashing going on!

The AQUA RUN will be held at The New York Sports Club, 39 W Northfield Rd, Livingston, NJ 07039  from 2pm to 5pm EST Saturday April 22, 2017

There are no fees for the Aqua Runners for this event, and we need Lipedema Runners.

  • $25.00  you're the "Floaties" for our runner
  • $50.00  you're the " Vest" for our runner
