This annual celebration of open water swim just keeps growing.  We are proud to be joinging Canaqua Sports as part of an exciting across Canada series of aquatic events including the Sea Dogs Open Water Swim and the Rockwood Park Swim/Run right here at home. This year there are some great new additions, events now include a 1-km swim at 9:00 am then at 9:45 there will be a 3-km and 5-km swim.  If you are a real keener why not try the Double Dip, the 1-km at 9:00 and your choice of 3-km or 5-km at 9:45.  

All particpants will receive a finishers medal, bathing cap, post race snacks and post race draw prizes 

Except in the Traditional races, wetsuits will be allowed as indicated by Tri Canada competition rules.  

There will be three age groups; 29 and under, 30-49, and 50 and over. 

For the kids we will have the Sea Dogs Splash and Dash from tykes all the way up to the early teens, something for everyone will be available.  The 5 and under requires no registration, just join us on race day for some fun. 

The Little River Resevoir is quickly becoming a centre for endurance sport with the Little River Resevoir Ultra Marathon and the Sea Dogs Open Water Swim choosing that great facility as home.
