Welland Canal Open Water Swim

For the 2020 season, we have moved the Welland Canal Open Water Swim to the Welland Canal Community Centre at the north end of the recreational canal, due to scheduling conflicts at the Flatwater Centre.

This part of the Canal has been identified by many of our race participants as "one of the nicest courses that they have ever swam at", with its tree lined shores and the same great water conditions as seen in other parts of the canal. The Welland Canal Open Water Swim has established itself as one of the premier open water swimming events in Ontario. With distances of 1 K, 2.5 K, 5 K, and 10 K we have something for everyone.So come on out on August 16 and join us at this prestigious event!

About The Course:

For all 1 K swimmers there is a special 1 K loop designed just for you.
