Chatfield Course 2021 2

Event Summary

The Chatfield Classic will consist of a 1-mile swim and a 2-mile swim.  These races will occur simultaneously. 

Participants who have not swam at the Chatfield gravel pond in the past should be aware that there is a gravel bar in the middle of the lake.  The gravel bar can create some shallow and slightly technical swimming, and also adds some race character. 

Participants may sign up for either the 1-mile swim, or the 2-mile swim.
