Each session will have programming and rides to compliment the swim, so bring your bike and get fit. This series is staffed by Big Shark Events Staff, Local Coaches and Training Partners and a full compliment of lifeguards from BYLG Sport.
When: Most Saturday Mornings from April 29th through June 24th. The Lake will be open for participants from 8:00 am – 9:30 am.

Wetsuits: The first 2 sessions, 4/29 and 5/6, will offer a Blue Seventy Free Wetsuit Demo. For future days, wetsuit rental rate is $10.00 per session, weather and supply permitting. Saturday 5/20, we will have a reduced supply of wetsuits (2 rental payments can be applied to purchase your very own wetsuit).
