The swimmer registration fee for this event is $55.00, and registration will open on October 1, 2018. This is a great opportunity for first-time open water swimmers and experienced swimmers. The swim course is in a protected area with not much chop. In addition, the swim will take place along a straight line, marked by buoys.
