About the Skaha Lake Ultra Swim
Skaha Lake is historically known as Dog Lake, but the local meaning is "horse". It is one of the wonderful British Columbia fresh water lakes in the Okanagan Valley. It lies between the south end of the city of Penticton and Okanagan Falls, B.C.
The Skaha Lake Ultra Swim is a point-to-point course along a meandering warm-water (23°C or 74°F on average) shoreline nestled within an incredibly scenic valley making it an ideal location for ultra distance swims.
Swimmers complete the 11.8k event solo, but accompanied by one swim escort. The swim course is closed six and one half (6.5) hours after the start of the event. Read More
