The Solstice Swim is a swim originally created in cooperation with the Longmont Kinetics Festival. Participants have the opportunity to swim either a 500-YD race, 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. Hope to see you in the water!
