New this year: 15K and two-day swim festival!

For the first time ever, join us for a TWO DAY Swim to the Moon swim festival!

Celebrate 15 years with a 15K swim! Complete the full 15K on Sunday, or swim the 10K on Saturday and 5K on Sunday.

Not ready to take on 15K? Swim the 10K or 5K on their own, or join us for any of our shorter distance swims (1 mile, 1.2 mile and .5 mile) throughout the weekend.

Or, for those who are ready to take the celebration even farther, swim 15.5 miles with the 10K on Saturday AND the 15K on Sunday!

Learn about our charity partner: North Star Reach

North Star Reach is a camp specially designed for children with life-threatening, serious, and chronic medical conditions. North Star Reach offers these kids the chance to enjoy one of childhood’s most valued traditions: a summer of swimming, climbing, canoeing, arts and crafts, making new friends, and creating lifelong memories.

Swim to the Moon would not be possible without North Star Reach, which serves as a starting location and turn-around point for swimmers. Learn more and consider making a donation!

Athlete Testimonial:

"...we had one of our best days, of any day, ever.  A day we will reminisce about from time to time. We will try to remember each little detail, each separate leg.  I call it our swimming safari. It was just great, from the tiki lanterns early this a.m., to the aid stations to the lovely finish, you thought of all of the details. You guys really organized a wonderful event (and we've been to quite a few open water events from Chicago to Chesapeake).  Thank you."
-Jon
