The 2014 version of the largest and oldest open water swim in Canada was daunting if not outright discouraging for most of the swimmers who started the 2.1km event at the Old Ferry Wharf jetty.
Canada’s Largest Open Water Swim
Welcome to the Interior Savings Across the Lake Swim, the largest and longest running open water swim event in Canada! It is time to start planning to take part in the 66th edition of the Interior Savings Across the Lake Swim on July 19th, 2014! 2014 will mark the 66th consecutive edition of an event that has always offered a challenge and a standard for young and old, newly minted swimmers and seasoned racers.
Since its beginning in 1949, the Interior Savings Across the Lake Swim in Kelowna, BC has always been more a demonstration of swimming ability than a race. Each summer, swimmers of all ages and abilities challenge themselves to swim 2.1 kilometres across Okanagan Lake, to test what they have learned and to master the distance.
Join us for the 66th swim on July 19th, 2014!
With the continued growth in participation in the Interior Savings Across The Lake Swim, the event organizers have been working all year to make this great event even more fun and safer than ever before. There are multiple support boats and lifeguards on the lake, wave starts, as well as a better-than-ever event bag!
