For you open water swimmers out there here is some good information for 2022 events from the staff of the Mountain Swim Series.
2021 certainly didn’t turn out like many of us expected. We are so grateful to each of you for making our races possible, and we are looking forward to the 2022 open water season!!
2022 has a lot to offer, including AN EARLY SEASON RACE AT CHATFIELD and the potential for a new race in WYOMING!!
The 2022 Mountain Swim Series dates are on the books, check them out below! We will open registration before the end of January. You will get an email letting you know that registration is open! But first, a couple of quick notes:
Because we don’t know what this upcoming summer will look like with COVID, we will NOT have race-day registration this year, and we will have to close registration 1-week in advance of all races. Please sign up early if you
want to swim!!
The dates for the swim series are as follows:
Chilly Chatfield – Sunday June 5, 2022
1 or 2 mile swim in water that we expect to be under 65 degrees.
Solstice Sunrise Swim – Sunday June 19, 2022
NEW COURSE ALERT!
Events includes a 500 yard kids race, a 1.2 mile or 2.4 mile swim.
Carter Lake – Saturday July 16, 2022
A 3-mile swim in beautiful Northern Colorado.
We are hoping that 2022 will be the year we return to a true crossing of the lake!
Chatfield Classic – Sunday July 31, 2022
Limited to 200 participants, sign up in while there is still space!
1 mile or 2 mile swim.
The Castle 2.5K/5K/10K – Saturday August 27, 2022
This is the highest altitude organized marathon swim event in the country! We will have the camping option again on Friday night – which you’ll find through the swim registration site. Camping is $40 for a 4 person site and will decrease your morning day of drive!
Registration information and updates for the year can be found at https://mountainswimseries.com/
WERE YOU AFFECTED BY THE MARSHALL FIRE?
The Mountain Swim Series is donating gear to those affected by the Marshall Fire. Here is a community resource list to ask for the gear you need.
Please reach out to us via email at mountainswimseries.com if you lost your home in the fire and we will support your racing for the summer!
We always need volunteers! If a significant other, friend, child (16 and over) is coming with you, we would love them to volunteer with us! If you are trying to decide to do one of the swims or new to open water swimming, volunteering is also a great opportunity! We couldn’t do this without our volunteers! In 2020, we will be continuing the tradition of giving our volunteers a free race entry after a volunteer shift!
To volunteer, sign up here:
We hope to see you in the water this year, and as always, happy swimming!
