Last year 175 swimmers had an amazing time at the inaugural swim, just hoping for a second chance to access this oasis! This year Parker Parks & Rec and Rueter Hess have allowed us to dive back into the pristine waters for round 2!
The course will be set up as a 1.2 mile out and back, with the option to swim two laps for a 2.4 mile swim. We’ll have refreshments and raffles post event as we post your times.
Please note that if you miss your chance to dive into the waters this July 28th you’ll need to wait a full year before getting another chance! This event is limited to just 175 athletes so don’t delay on registration, last year’s race sold out in a few months!
