Trailblazing Swim Leads To A New Adventure In Alaska
The creation of this new race enables cold-water swimmers to enjoy two back-to-back races now in Alaska with the more established 8.2-mile Pennock Island Challenge expected to continue its constant growth in its seventh year in August 2010.
With nature galore, the race is bound to be a success.
Like Claudia‘s initial 4 hour and 36 minute traverse from Kruzof Island to Halibut Point in 54˚F (12.2˚C) waters, athletes will need to be well-prepared for a tough 10K swim. But the raw, unspoiled nature of Sitka Sound and Pennock Island Challenge will be an unbeatable treat for those who dare.
