We swim 8 lakes over the course of 9 days. Crystal, Island Pond, Echo, Seymour, Massawippi, Memphremagog, Willoughby, and Caspian. Swim one or swim them all. Long and short options each day.
For 2017 we are proposing to run three to four 20 Bridges Swims with up to 12 swimmers per event. We have selected four date blocks of between two and six days when these swims will take place. On one of these date blocks we hope to hold a 20 Bridges weekend “festival” with two 20 Bridges swims on consecutive days in order to draw a swimmers from all over the world and celebrate our great sport of marathon swimming; one of the best traditions of MIMS was the large congregation of like-minded people and it’s something we’d like to continue.
3 miles to Bathtub Rock and back or 1.5 miles to The Rock, Caspian is a hidden jewel. Just a great way to end a great week of open water swimming. $50

The Lough Dan races are held in the mountain lake at Lough Dan, Roundwood, County Wicklow. Swimmers get the opportunity to push out the distance in scenic county Wicklow. For some swimmers competing in the Lough Dan Races are stepping stones from the standard mile swim to testing whether a swimmer has the ability to swim a marathon swim like the English Channel. A swimmer who can complete the 10k in Lough Dan is ready to start training for the English Channel. For other swimmers they come for the opportunity to swim in a clear fresh water lake in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains.
Swimmers swim down a line of buoys 1.25km, they then swim back up making a 2.5m loop. 2 Loops is 5k and 4 loops is 10k.
The Lough Dan comprises a 2.5 kilometre circuit. 2 laps is 5 kilometre and 4 laps is 10 Kilometre. Leinster Open Sea will limit the number of swimmers to a maximum of 75.
There are 15 races for all ages and abilities, including Beginner, Sprint, Olympic and ⅓ Iron Distance traithlons, duathlons, aquabikes, and aquathlons, plus a 3k and 5k open swim race. With registration you get a finisher medal, performance tee, photo booth and professional in-race pictures, post race pizza party, aromatherapy “happy finish” towels, music and much more!
