SCAR Swim: Day 4 Across Roosevelt Lake

SCAR Swim: Day 4 Across Roosevelt Lake

Day 4 of the 4-stage SCAR Swim Challenge in Arizona is held at night. Day 4 is a 10 km swim on a new triangular-shaped course in Roosevelt Lake.

The point-to-point swims across 4 reservoirs (Saguaro Lake, Canyon Lake, Apache Lake, Roosevelt Lake) in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona organized by Kent Nicholas can be difficult – and the results reflect the oncoming currents, wind chop, water temperature fluctuations, and distances.

The cumulative time results after 3 days include:

  1. Steven Munatones 13:29:04.3
  2. Lura Wilhelm 15:03:53.0
  3. Jordan Iverson 15:13:38.1
