Zorbaz Gull Lake Challenge • June 9, 2018
Zorbaz Gull Lake Challenge takes place in one of Brainerd's Gull Lake Chain’s hidden treasures – Lake Margaret. A large expanse with narrower channel segments offer swimmers calm water to swim. This makes it well suited for all levels of swimmers and triathletes alike. The full race will be a very fast course for experienced open water swimmers, 2.4 mile distance is the perfect season warm-up for ironman distance triathletes, and the mid-sized/sheltered nature of the race makes this perfect for the less experienced swimmer trying their first distance open water race. The 1.2 mile option and the relay option (1.2 and 1 mile legs) adds variety for athletes looking for an open water race but aren’t ready to tackle 2.4 miles, are training for other 1 mile swim races or are preparing for shorter triathlons. This race is set in a beautiful lake and offers a challenge to all levels and types of athletes.
Race day won't be the same without you!
Your support of these great athletes makes all the difference in the day.

IGNITE SwimRun is an endurance race that combines the thrill of endurance racing with the beauty of nature.
Participants compete as a two-person team. Not a relay. Teams consist of all men, all women and mixed gender. The race begins with a mass wave start. Teams complete numerous swim and run legs ending at the finish line. During the race, teammates must remain within 10 meters of each other at all times. Teammates must complete the entire course and cross the finish line together.
OUR FRIEND'S RACE: POINT TO LA POINT
JULY 29, 2017 - A fun day of fun, friends & family!
Swimming to the island has been a storied feat around the Bayfield area for decades. Point to LaPointe started as a community swim for 24 people in 2006. The event is now a race featuring more than 400 participants. Swimmers have encountered all of Lake Superior's moods over the years, from calm, flat water to strong crosswinds with 2 foot waves. The course follows the path of the winter "ice road", starting in Bayfield and landing at a beautiful family home on Madeline Island. Spectators take the ferry across which offers views of the race. The event is a fundraiser for swim programs at the Bayfield Area Recreation Center. Casual swimmers can still enter the community event and bring their own escort.
