Bear Lake Monster Swim Race Description

Do you dare swim with the Bear Lake Monster?

The Bear Lake Monster Swim is a 10K point-to-point swim across the width of Bear Lake.  The swim is open to solo swimmers and 2 to 6-person relay teams.  All solo swimmers must provide their own support paddler.  Relay teams are responsible for providing their own support craft, large enough to hold all team members.

If you are new to open water, or are more of a sprinter than a distance swimmer, check out our 1 mile and 1/2 mile races. These swims will take place near the Bear Lake State Park Marina. Both swims will be out-and-back.

All 10K solo swimmers are REQUIRED to have their own kayak support.  

Swimmers are welcome to wear a safety buoy such as the New Wave Swim Buoy.

Utah Triple Crown

The 10K solo swim is one of three swims that make up the Utah Triple Crown. The other two swims are the 10K swim at the Great Salt Lake and the 10 mile swim at Deer Creek Reservoir.

Swimmers who complete all three of these swims in the same year will receive the Utah Triple Crown award at the annual Salt Lake Open Water (SLOW) awards dinner.

Mini Triple Crown

The Mini Triple Crown consists of three one mile swims at the Great Salt Lake Open Water Swim, Bear Lake (this event), and Deer Creek Open Water Marathon Swim.  Swimmers who complete all three one-mile swims in the same year will receive an award at the annual Salt Lake Open Water (SLOW) awards dinner.

We are offering a discounted bundle for anyone who is interested in doing the Utah Triple Crown or the Mini Triple Crown.
