It also offers a 100-meter swim for children 10 and under. All races are held on the last Saturday of June. The annual event was founded by Ben Stubenberg and Chloe Zimmerman in 2010 and has been named by WOWSA as one of the top 100 open water races in the world.
The race is a non-profit event that donates the bulk of proceeds to the Provo Children’s Home and other local charities.
