About This Activity

Celebrate clean, healthy water in Grand Traverse Bay with one of the region’s only point-to-point open water swim events on Saturday, August 13, 2016, to benefit The Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay, a non-profit that works to protect the Bay and its 1,000-square-mile watershed.

The 2-mile swim begins at Greilickville Harbor Park in Elmwood Township and ends on the shore of Volleyball Beach, in beautiful downtown Traverse City, with an after-party to follow next door at Clinch Park.

Whether you’re a serious swimmer looking for a timed event, a triathlete wanting to practice in open water, a recreational swimmer setting a personal goal for your swimming or someone who is passionate about water quality and making a difference locally, the Swim for Grand Traverse Bay is an exciting, challenging and fun celebration of clean and healthy water in our region.

The Swim for Grand Traverse Bay, a Waterkeeper Alliance SPLASH Series event presented nationally by Toyota, aims to strengthen our community’s connection to Grand Traverse Bay and its watershed.
