JOIN US FOR THE 69th SWIM
ON JULY 15th, 2017
Welcome to the Interior Savings Across the Lake Swim, the largest and longest running open water swim event in Canada! It is time to start planning to take part in the Interior Savings Across the Lake Swim on July 15th, 2017! 2017 will mark the 69th consecutive edition of an event that has always offered a challenge and a standard for young and old, newly minted swimmers and seasoned racers.

Each summer, swimmers of all ages and abilities challenge themselves to swim 2.1 kilometres across Okanagan Lake, to test what they have learned and to master the distance.
