This Lake Washington adventure offers the best possible practice for Seattle’s most elite race, the 2014 Fat Salmon Open Water Swim. It’s our longest Swim Excursion this season, perfect for those who want to test their endurance in the open water. This is a fun, but quite challenging, event. All swimmers leave with a Tubby Trout prize.
Route: We started at Martha Washington Park (South Seattle) and swam south. Participants enjoyed passing some of Seattle’s toniest real estate as they swam! We also got a glimpse of Beer Sheva Park, named after Seattle’s sister city in Israel.
