Lake Chelan Swim

The Lake Chelan Swim is an annual open water swimming event that takes place in Lake Chelan, a beautiful natural lake located in the North Cascades region of Washington State.

This is grape-growing country, and you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in the Mediterranean. The weather is still perfect swimming weather in September and crystal-clear with stunning views of the surrounding mountains and pristine wilderness.

There’s a great community vibe, and the event is super local and family-friendly, often with a turnout of less than a hundred competitors, from kids to grandparents. There is often a run in the town at the same time so there’s a great atmosphere. For those who enjoy a glass of wine post race, there are incredible vineyards to explore in the area. The town is pretty with lots of accommodation and restaurant options.

Proceeds go to a local foundation that provides free swimming lessons for kids.
