We're completely pleased to announced the 2021 Long Bridge Swim will proceed in our grand 26-year tradition!
After the COVID-19 pandemic sank our 2020 Long Bridge Swim, we are all systems go for the 2021 swim, to be held on Saturday, August 7, 2021. And you can register right now, so why wait? Click to register.
Our decision last year to cancel the 2020 swim came after due consideration of the many factors arising from the COVID-19 outbreak, and our desire to keep swimmers, volunteers and spectators safe. We have applied all that same criteria this year in making our decision to proceed with our 2021 race. We will be practicing all recommended health precautions to keep our swimmers safe, both in and out of the water.

If you are not acquainted, our annual Long Bridge Swim is held the first Saturday in August. Located in beautiful Sandpoint, Idaho, this 1.76-mile swim across Lake Pend Oreille is one of the Northwest's premier open-water events. Because it parallels the namesake Long Bridge into Sandpoint, it offers the unique chance for friends and family of swimmers to follow along the swim course from the bridge.
