Seattle’s Annual 10K Invitational
A BRAND-NEW ROUTE FOR 2019
This challenging endurance event in Lake Washington is for experienced distance swimmers only. Come celebrate its third year with a brand-new route!
Twenty-five swimmers completed the course in 2018, and many described it as one of the best swimming experience they’ve had.
Swimmers must provide their own paddlers to supplement our trained safety craft, which includes kayakers and at least one Zodiac.
All swimmers will receive a branded swim cap and their choice of champagne or chocolates as a celebratory prize; all support personnel and kayakers receive a gourmet sandwich from an award-winning bakery.
