This year's event will be a combined event with the entire Helena swimming community!  Please join us December 31st for a day of camaraderie, epic swimming, and fun. The first heats will begin at 7:00 AM.

If you are unable to join us on Monday the 31st you can always pay your fee and swim when it is convenient. Just bring in your time and we will gladly post it with the others.
