To all the open water swimmers, Global Swim Series is coming to Toronto to host the 3rd annual Toronto Island Lake Swim

Hop on the ferry to the island and take part in one of their 3 races all starting at Centre Island Pier. The event offers a 750m, a 1.5km, and a 3.8km swim. Your registration will include a t-shirt, a heat swim cap, and a racing chip. The water temperature in that area fluctuates between 10 and 20 degrees and there is an option to swim with a wetsuit.

Check-in is from 9-12am. Races start at 11:00am.

Waterkeeper is a proud partner of this fantastic event raising awareness for water quality and Toronto's beaches.

If you aren’t swimming come down to the beach to cheer on hundreds of athletes and enjoy the fun and festive beach atmosphere.
