Across the Lake Swim Skaha Lake
Sunday, August 11th, 2024
Skaha Lake, originally known as "Dog Lake" but with a local twist meaning "horse," is an absolutely gorgeous freshwater gem nestled between the southern tip of Penticton and Okanagan Falls in British Columbia's stunning Okanagan Valley.
The Across the Lake Swim Skaha Lake is no ordinary swim. It's a point-to-point course starting in Penticton's Skaha Lake Park and finishing in Okanagan Falls. The water averages a delightful 23°C (74°F).
The scenery is absolutely breathtaking, with the surrounding valley adding to the picturesque setting.
The swim is a 11.8km, done solo but not entirely alone, as each swimmer is accompanied by their own support escort.
