Toronto Island Lake Swim


Just a short ferry ride from the heart of downtown Toronto, the Toronto islands offer a scenic beach and beautiful conditions for this race.  An original member of GSS this event has a 750m, 1.5km and 3.8km race through crystal clear and crisp water along a sandy beach.  The event celebrates Toronto’s storied history of open water swimming with roots that date back to the 1800’s.  The event also actively promotes awareness for keeping Lake Ontario clean through a partnership with the Lake Ontario Waterkeeper Charity.  With a variety of distances, hundreds of swimmers and a festive beach atmosphere the Toronto Island Lake Swim will once again be a marquee open water event in the Toronto area this summer.
