Open Water Swims

The 2017 Saratoga Triathlon Club open water swims will take place at Moreau Lake State Park in Gansevoort, NY. Moreau Lake is an ideal venue for open water swimming and we invite you to come along! Read on for details. If you have not done a race with an open water swim since 1/1/15, please arrive no later than 5:30pm because you will need to perform a brief swim test.

Our 2017 swim season runs from Thursday 6/1 through Thursday 8/31. Swims take place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. We ask that you arrive early to get checked in.

Qualifying

All participants need to sign a waiver and submit evidence of being able to competently swim in the open water. To learn more about this process, or to pre-qualify yourself through our online form, click here.

Fees

Fees for club members are $5/swim or $40/season (14 sessions). For others, a day membership must be purchased for $5 in addition to the $5 swim fee. Please become a member!

There is an $8 fee to enter Moreau Lake State Park. You can save plenty of money by buying an Empire Passport ($65) which gets you unlimited access to not only Moreau, but all the parks within the NYS Parks system for the summer.
