There is nothing more refreshing than swimming in the crystalline clear waters of Lake Tahoe. Sand Harbor State Park located on the northeast shore of the lake offers both comfortable water and air temperatures this time of year, making it a perfect swim venue. The 1-mile swim starts at the beach next to the boat ramp, goes out through the unique rock formations and finishes at the south end of the park’s Main Beach. This swim is particularly special, as it takes place at the most stunningly beautiful, boulder-strewn area of Lake Tahoe. This event is part of the Sharkfest Swim Series which hosts open water swim events across the United States and in Mexico.

It’s an extraordinary open-water swimming adventure through the picturesque Hiland Chain of Lakes near Hell, Michigan. Participants choose their distance — half mile, 1.2 mile, 5K, or 10K — and have the time of their lives swimming through Southeast Michigan’s most sublime waterways, all the while showing support for a very worthy cause: North Star Reach, a camp for children with life-threatening, serious, and chronic medical conditions.
The 5K swim starts on the shores of Patterson Lake at North Star Reach; from there, swimmers head south and east through the heavily forested Pinckney Recreation Area, passing through five lakes along the way. Scattered cottages are the only signs of civilization. 10K race participants start at Halfmoon Lake Beach, swim to the start of the 5K (where their “special needs” bags will be available), then turn around to head back to the shores of Halfmoon Lake Beach. Both the half-mile and the 1.2-mile swim start at Halfmoon Lake Beach. All events finish at the state beach on the east shore of Halfmoon Lake.
Imagine swimming across Boston Harbor from Portside at East Pier in east Boston to the swim finish at the John Joseph Moakley US Federal Courthouse at Fan Pier in South Boston.

The Coast Guard will stop all boat traffic in and out of the channel during this event. Water taxis will transport swimmers from the finish line to the start of the swim. This event is part of the Sharkfest Swim Series which hosts open water swim events across the United States and in Mexico.
