Horsetooth 1.2M/2.4M/Youth Swim Race Description

This swim starts/finishes at the South Bay swim beach. The course starts in the water by the beach/swim ramp, does a triangular course twice, finishing out of the water, on the beach/swim ramp.

There are 2 divisions for the 2.4M and 1.2M races:  Wet suit and non-wet suit.  You’ll indicate which you want to participate in during the registration process.


The 2.4 Mile event is open to swimmers at least 13 years of age as of race day. The 1.2 Mile event is open to swimmers at least 11 years of age as of race day.  The Youth races are for ages 8-18 years of age


Swimmers must wear the race swim cap.

All WOWSA rules apply including swimsuit definitions. Exceptions and clarifications include:

Unlike many open water events, the Horsetooth Open Water Swim allows no drafting except where unavoidable at the start. If flagrant drafting is observed, that swimmer will be disqualified.

WOWSA Marathon and Channel Rules state swimsuits shall not go beyond the end of the groin or shoulders.  The Horsetooth Open Water Swim allows the swimsuit to extend to the knees.  Any swimsuit that does not meet these requirements will be classified as a wet suit swimmer.


First, second and third place, male and female, will receive a medal in each category (wet suit and non-wet suit except the youth races).
