Reeves Wills Himself To Victory In Great Salt Lake

Gordon Gridley and Josh Green hosted the 1- and 8-mile Great Salt Lake Open Water Marathon Swim this past Saturday.

66-year-old Will Reeves swam confidently and buoyantly in the 8-miler when he set a record in 3 hours 10 minute. “We had another great event at the Great Salt Lake this year,” said Green. “12 swimmers started the 8-mile swim from Antelope Island to Black Rock Beach and 11 finished.”

Gridley and Green‘s next swim is the Bear Lake Monster Swim, a 7-mile point-to-point open water swimming race across the width of Bear Lake – home of the Bear Lake Monster. The open water swim is open to solo swimmers and 2 to 6-person relay teams. All solo swimmers must provide their own support paddler. Relay teams are responsible for providing their own support craft, large enough to hold all team members. Swimmers will be shuttled with their paddlers from the Bear Lake Marina to Cisco Beach. The swim will start in the water at Cisco Beach and will finish just north of the Bear Lake Marina on the opposite side of the lake.
