The Across the Lake Swim Shore Splash is a free event for kids aged 5-12. Kids swim about 25 metres in a roped off area along the shore in City Park. The event starts at 8am, the exact same time as the first wave of swimmers on the other side.
The kids will get a timing chip and cross under the finish line arch just like the big kids! They will finish just before the first Interior Savings Across the Lake Swim swimmers come in. Parents must walk along the beach beside their child during the swim (parents should expect to get their feet wet!).
The swim is in a roped off area in very shallow water along the shore and is supervised by lifeguards. Lifejackets are available.
Parents register your child the morning of the swim near the finish line.
Note that conditions must be deemed as safe before the event takes place. Organizers will cancel the event on the day if there are high waves or other adverse conditions.
