Mission Possible: Do you have what it takes?

Summer will be here before you know it.... and what better way to celebrate summer than with a 12 hour swim? Not your cup of tea? No worries, we have distances for everyone to enjoy. Our 12 hour swim challenge involves a 1/4 mile long loop to be repeated until you tap out. If you're not feeling up to doing 12 hours alone- feel free to do it with 1,2, or 3 other people to make it a fun relay. We'll also have a 1 mile swim and a just for fun free floaty loop for all to enjoy.

You can be sure we will have a great aid station full of food, drink, and all the cheery volunteers you could ever hope for. Mission Lake has a wonderful grass area for your family/friends/ supporters to spread out on and enjoy!

A minimum of 35 people MUST be signed up for either 1 mile swim or the 12 hour challenge in order for us to hold this event. If we do not meet this minimum, we will reach out to those signed up for a refund, donation, or to defer to next year's event.
