Canada's Largest and Longest Running Open Water Swim
ACROSS THE LAKE SWIM
KELOWNA, BC, CANADA
SWIM WITH US IN 2024!
Welcome to the Interior Savings Across the Lake Swim Kelowna, the largest and longest running open water swim event in Canada! It is time to start planning to take part in the Interior Savings Across the Lake Swim on July 20th, 2024! 2024 will mark the 76th 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.

Swim Free Initiative
We are committed to helping reduce and recycle to ensure we can always swim free. Starting in 2020, we have taken steps in this direction by only offering online registration, reducing the amount of paper we hand out, eliminating single use water bottles, using more eco-friendly awards, and adding water refilling stations.
