2013 Race Results

2013 Race Results

Congratulations to Will Reeves, for smashing the 8 mile course record! This course was first swam in 1937 and the record was respectfully set at 3:40:52. It was broken in 2010 down to 3:24:37. But today, Will shaved off another 14 minutes and swam it in 3:10:10!

Great job!

Amazing swim everyone. You all deserve a great deal of respect for your tenacity! Pictures can be found on our Facebook page, in two albums:

2012 Race Results

Due to high wind warnings, we had to make some last minute modifications to the planned starts, or cancel the race completely. We had several swimmers arrive on Thursday to swim, so we opted to do the swim on Friday. Friday's Antelope Island to Black Rock race consisted of 7 swimmers, and 28 swimmers in the 1 mile race. In both races, despite rougher water than last year, the 8 mile time was beat by nearly two minutes, and the one mile time by nearly 4 minutes!

Congratulations to Henry Hudson of Park City, for breaking the record!
