One of the shorter events available this year is the 1-Mile Swim on Labor Day Monday. The event will leave from Dale's at 8:30 a.m. with a 1/2 mile swim out and 1/2 mile swim back. A personal escort is not required for the 1-mile swim. We will have certified lifeguards (thanks YMCA!) in boats following swimmers. (Note: A personal escort in a boat or kayak IS required for the 4 mile swim). Thinking about making the "Big Swim," but not sure you can make the distance? Give the 1-mile swim a try this year and make the 4-mile swim your goal next year. We hope the shorter distance events will encourage new participants to "Take the Lake" Labor Day weekend!
