    Celebrate clean, healthy water with an open-water swim on Grand Traverse Bay! The event benefits The Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay, a non-profit that works to protect the bay and its 1,000-square mile watershed.

    The two-mile swim begins at Greilickville Harbor Park in Elmwood Township and ends at Volleyball Beach in downtown Traverse City. Whether you're a serious adult swimmer looking for a timed event, a triathlete wanting to practice in open water, a recreational swimmer, or someone who is passionate about water quality and making a difference locally, this swim is an event for you. You can bring a support kayak person, too!
