Thank to everyone who came to the swim! Here are this years results.
The SWIM ACROSS SUTTLE open water swim will be taking place on Sunday August 28, 2016 at 8:00 am. The swim will begin at the Suttle Lake boat launch and finish at the day use area nearest Highway 20. With a distance of 1.3 mile (2100 meters) from end to end, Suttle Lake is the perfect distance for triathletes preparing for a half iron distance event, a beginning swimmer, or the seasoned open water athlete. With ample kayak support and a route that hugs the shoreline, competitors of all ability can be successful.

WETSUIT vs NON-WETSUIT: In order to accommodate all competitors we will be having a wetsuit and non-wetsuit category. We will be recognizing the winners, male and female in each category.
WATER TEMPERATURE: The following temperature readings are from a research buoy monitoring the conditions of Suttle Lake. The water temperature fluctuates on the surface, however the buoy is a deep water temperature reading.

August 19, 2016: 68 degrees (nearing 69 degrees)
August 25, 2016: Still 68 degrees, but with the cold mornings the temperature is now on a descending trend and was nearing 67 degrees. There will not be much change before the swim.
DIRECTIONS: From Sisters take Highway 20 heading west to Suttle Lake Recreation Area. The turn off is on the left side of the highway. Allow 25 minutes from Sisters. Suttle Lake is approximately fifteen miles east of Hoodoo ski area.
PARKING: A limited amount of parking is available at the Suttle Lake boat landing. The majority of the parking is at the day use area at the finish of the race. It is suggested to park at the day use area and walk the short mile to the beginning of the race on single track trail bordering the lake on the north side.
