Ranked as one of the Top 100 Open Water Swims the World by WOWSA, the SCAR SWIM has gained a following of some of the most prolific swimmers in the sport. Having attracted International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame Swimmers, Triple Crown Swimmers and swimmers who are training for their first channel, the SCAR SWIM is a popular training ground given it's rugged beauty, challenging consecutive distances and early season dates.

With a limited field of 45 swimmers per lake, the participants get to know each other very well and cement open water connections throughout the world including places like Italy, United Kingdom, Ireland, Scotland, Japan, Costa Rica, India, South Africa and Australia. The SCAR SOCIAL on April 24th is designed to enhance the network of swimmers and race organizers. There is no extra charge for attending the social event which will feature pasta, beer and dessert. SCAR is a non-wetsuit series of swims given the high demand by international open water swimmers who are training for non-wetsuit channels.

Price: apply before November 15, 2017 for $1250 for all four swims or separate fee per lake. Those wanting to swim 2 or 3 swims will have to go on-line and register separately for each lake. Once your Swim Application is received and reviewed for acceptance - an email will be sent with payment information. Upon payment you will be registered with a confirmation email.
