Let the season begin! New this year we raised the rate to $15 if you register before the day of the swim. It is getting increasingly difficult to put on these swims and the time and expense of doing them is growing. As such we really need 20 swimmers as a minimum to hold the swims. So please work with your network and get people signed up!
Open water swimming is strictly prohibited in Lake Royer unless organized by Racine MultiSports.

We have always strived to keep this opportunity as a low cost option. Our effort to provide these swims is getting increasingly more difficult so we are raising our rates this year.
