Alpine Freshwater Swim at Donner Lake
Posted by: Palisades Tahoe Lodge
Escape the heat this summer in the Alpine Freshwater Swim at Donner Lake on Sunday, July 24! This morning swim has fantastic views and will be sure to wake you up and cool you off. Dive into fun wearing your wetsuit or brave the cold water without one. Stay after for the BBQ and awards show and proudly wear your event t-shirt around town after the swim!
Test your athletic ability and sign up for the .5 mile, 1.2 mile or the 2.4 mile swim and choose either the wetsuit or non-wetsuit division. The .5 mile and 1.2 mile swims include two left turns and the 2.4 mile course includes a short beach run before starting the second lap. All participants will start shin-deep in the water before swimming out to large buoys before returning to the beach.
Register before July 24 and pay $50 for the .5 mile swim, $60 for the 1.2 mile swim and $70 for the 2.4 mile swim. Seniors and youth get a $5 discount, and if you register on the day, prices go up by $15. Each participant receives a swim cap, t-shirt, recovery food and BBQ with awards ceremony. Bring your goggles, towel and extra money for the parking and get ready for an early morning swim like no other!
