I just wanted to let everyone know that registration for the inaugural Great Salt Lake Open Water Swim is open! We have been working hard to make this a great event and hope that you will join us.
Here are some details about the swim:
The race will feature a 1 mile point-to-point swim from the Great Salt Lake Marina to Black Rock Beach as well as an 8.12 mile point-to-point swim from the southern tip of Antelope Island to Black Rock Beach.
Registration fees are $45 for the 1 mile swim and $65 for the 8.12 mile swim. Registration includes a t-shirt and participation award. You must be a USMS member to participate. If you are not a member of USMS, one day memberships are available at an additional cost or you can become an annual member for only $45 and receive the benefits of membership throughout the year.
Swimmers participating in the 8.12 mile swim will be required to provide their own support boat and paddler. The 1 mile swimmers will not be required to provide a support boat.
Not feeling up to the challenge (or don't dare swim with the brine shrimp)? That's OK, we need volunteers! If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, leave a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All volunteers will get a t-shirt for their efforts.
We have some great sponsors on board and are looking to add more. Who would you like to see sponsor the swim? If you, or someone you know, would like to get in on the ground floor of this unique event, send me an email at email@example.com.
