2010 Zoot Open Water Swim


2010 Zoot Open Water Swim

Beautiful Sandy Lake, Buckhorn

Why? A great start to open water swimming. This is a great opportunity to tune up your open water swimming for triathlon races or for those swimming experts! For many the swim is the most intimidating part of the triathlon, this will help you ease into triathlon season without worrying about the bike or run. If you're training for an Ironman or Half Ironman or Muskoka in June this is an early season MUST!

What Else? The water temperature is between 16-19 degrees and folks do swim without a wetsuit but in my opinion wetsuits are recommended. Don't have one? Runner's life has wetsuit rentals that can be rented for race day if pre-arranged.
