A swimmer enjoying the Huron River

If you’ve never swum in the Huron, if you like swimming but are tired of only seeing the black lines at the bottom of a pool, if you love river and lake swimming…….

Come join HRWC and other swimmers on Sunday, July 15th at 8:30 to swim across Baseline Lake and back. That’s about a mile. The UM Sailing Club hosts us, and it’s a warm, noncompetitive swim with food and drink afterward.  We have paddlers, a lifeguard, and some motor boats on hand to help out if needed.

I’ve swum it every year and I love it!  Every year we get some of the same swimmers, along with some new who just heard about it or wanted to try it out.  It’s usually a warm, beautiful morning on the river/lake.  And swimming in a lake is so refreshing and inspiring after pool and lap swimming!

This year, we’ve added the option of going around twice for those swimmers looking for a greater challenge.

Cost is $25/HRWC members, $35 for non-members, and $40 for a family.
