The Solstice Sunset Swim is a swim created in cooperation with the Longmont Kinetics Festival. Participants have the opportunity to swim either a 1.2 mile race or a 2.4 mile race. Awards will be given out to the top three finishers in each division for each race. Divisions will be both non-wetsuit and wetsuit for both men and women for each race. Following the race, there will be a bonfire on the lake. Before the event there is the festival. Details can be found at http://longmontkinetics.com/. Hope to see you both in the water and in the beer garden!
