Around the Lake in 80 Days — 40 Days to Go!

Marine TrailJust over a month into the Around the Lake in 80 Days challenge and a few swimmers and teams will be completing the circumnavigation by week’s end!

That’s “Around the Lake in Less than 40 Days.”

Since this is a self-challenge, it’s not too late to start — Get an arrow and join in!

To get started, simply ask MVA staff for a “Post-It Note” and write your name on the colored arrow. After each workout, calculate your yardage and move your arrow to the corresponding location to track your cumulative distance in miles.

Swim 80 miles in 80 days and you’ve (virtually) circumnavigated the lake via the Flathead Lake Marine Trail (see map).

As of Sunday morning, May 4, the standings are as follows:
