ALAS: OUR 2017 SWIM GOT BLOWN AWAY

High winds creating hazardous conditions forced us to cancel the August 5, 2017 Long Bridge Swim on the morning of the event. It's the first time in the swim's 23-year history. As we explained to the 711 registered swimmers that morning, we could not deploy our safety team due to the strong wind conditions and could not put swimmers at risk. Our sincere THANK YOU to all of our volunteers, sponsors and event participants who supported the tough decision to cancel the swim.  

For more about the 2017 swim and cancellation, click for the Bonner County Daily Bee article.

We're already planning the 2018 Long Bridge Swim - and are pleased to announce a special SUPER EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION for only $10, which will be available through September 30, 2017. Link to that registration here. Thanks to everyone for supporting the Long Bridge Swim!
