Open Water

There is no one better equipped than John to coach you to open water success



Many athletes put in the hours, but eventually hit a plateau. We've all been there! Our coaches focus on technique to maximize your performance. 

French Creek Racing, founded in 2012 by Pro Triathlete John Kenny, provides year-round training for the Greater Philadelphia area’s triathletes and open water swimmers. In addition to elite triathlons and open water races, French Creek Racing holds open water training swims, and indoor/outdoor swim training year round. Our high quality training and attention to the details that matter to you as the athlete are what set us apart from everyone else in the game. We have a team of amazing coaches, and support staff to give you the best experiences at our events, and trainings. We know every athlete has unique goals, and we're here to help you achieve them, quickly, affordably, and while having fun along the way! 

Don't take our word for it, though! Visit our Testimonials Page to see what others are saying about us, and our Destination Training Camps.

John is a passionate Pro Triathlete, five-time U.S. National Champion in distances ranging from 10k to 25k. He is a seven-time U.S. National Team member, and has competed in a wide variety of prestigious races including: U.S. Nationals, Olympic Trials, Pan Ams, Pan Pacs, World Cups, and World Championships. There are many swimmers out there with more raw speed in the pool, but very few could match his experience, endurance, tactics, and innate sense of finding the fastest, most efficient way to finish an open water race. From short races to marathons, flat lake swims to rough ocean or turbulent river swims, John Kenny is the most experienced open water swimmer in the United States. Other coaches in the triathlon realm claiming to be "open water experts" just do not come close.
