The 9th annual Lake Chelan Swim
- Posted on 05/21/2019
The 9th annual Lake Chelan Swim takes place on Saturday, September 7, 2019, always the first Saturday after Labor Day! The event raises funds and awareness for swimming lessons on Lake Chelan to serve both residents and visitors. This is another grassroots effort developed and produced by a dedicated group of volunteers and very generous sponsors. The Manson Chamber of Commerce encourages everyone in the Lake Chelan Valley to get involved!
This is a FUN event held at beautiful Lake Chelan, Washington. We welcome adults and children (over 12) of any fitness level. You don't have to be a competitive swimmer to participate, this is a fun event suitable for the whole family!
The swim is 1.5 miles long and starts at Willow Point Park and goes to Manson Bay Park on the north shore of Lake Chelan.
Register in person on Friday, September 6 from 5-7 pm or the morning of the race at Manson Bay Park. You can also register online.
Check in takes place at Manson Bay Park in Manson. Swimmers must be CHECKED-IN by 11:00 a.m. All swimmers must sign the Liability Release at Check-In ( please email email@example.com if you would like an advance copy) and all swimmers under 18 must have parent or guardian present to sign Liability Release. Registration opens at 9:00 and will be available the day of the race.
Buses will shuttle swimmers and spectators to Willow Point Park right after the Safety meeting at 11: 00 am. Parking is not available at the race start so all spectators and participants need to use the shuttle buses.
