Bus and gear transfer:
The park to park swim is a fun, non-competitive event for a great local cause. Participants enter the water in waves based on swim speed. Although there will be plenty of boat support for safety, this event is for strong swimmers who can complete the swim distance in less than 2 hours.
$45 through July 31st
$60 August 1-23 (no event day registration)
Registration includes bus transportation, an event T-shirt, a swim cap, breakfast at Denny Park, a discount at Everyday Athlete, and great camaraderie!
You are not required to fundraise for this event, but every small donation can help a child in need. Set a personal fundraising goal of any amount, and ask friends, family, and coworkers for their support. Special recognition for our top fundraisers will be included on the website.
We hit 300 swimmers! Registration is now closed.
The first (slowest) wave starts at 7:30 am.
A shuttle bus will be available to take participants from Denny Park to Matthews Beach before the swim, or in the opposite direction after the event. The bus will also transport your towels, warm clothes, and other belongings so it is available when you arrive on the shores of Denny Park.
The bus departs Denny Park at 6:30 am prior to the swim.
After the event, the shuttle will return the swimmers who parked at Matthews Beach to their cars. It will run every 30 minutes starting at 9:00 am until 10:30 am.
The average water temperature in late August is 69-71 degrees F. Wet suits are allowed but not required. Wet suits are available to rent or buy through our friends at Everyday Athlete in Kirkland.
Swimmer numbers and packets will be available for pick up from 6:00-7:00am the morning of the event.
