On Saturday, June 20, 2015, open water swimmer and endurance athlete Darren Miller will tackle the Sub-3² Challenge at Presque Isle State Park on beautiful Lake Erie. A few short hours north of Pittsburgh, it is the perfect setting to have a marathon run and a marathon swim, back-to-back. The run will follow the Presque Isle Half and Erie Marathon courses; a flat, 13.1-mile lakefront loop around the park. His fiancé, Alli DeFrancesco, and Josh Heynes (marathon swimmer, Ironman and founder of the Lake Erie Open Water Swimming Association) will be head crew to support the swimming portion along with other Canadian marathon swimmers. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The event will be held in honor of Alli's 11-year old cousin, Julia, who has recently been diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma. Ewing’s is a rare form of cancer which forms in the bone. As her battle begins, Julia and her family will be challenged in a way many will never know, and we have decided to make this a benefit race to support their journey. We hope you will support with any contribution you can make to First Descents in Julia’s honor.
