The TEAM Wellness & Prevention Horsetooth Open Water Swim is definitely our most UNIQUE event. It not only provides the opportunity for athletes to participate in a 10k point to point swim from the north end of Horsetooth Reservoir to the south end, it also raises funds for Team Fort Collins. There are other swims too: 2.4 mile, 1 mile and youth swims.

The Date is Set!

Get ready!  The date for the Horsetooth Open Water Swim is August 14, 2016!

We hope you will join us!

Race Changes

We’ve added a wet suit division for the 1.2 mile race!  There are now 2 wet suit events: 1.2 mile or 2.4 mile.

Registration Opens on March 1, 2016

Registration for 2016 will include Peer to Peer Fundraising capabilities powered by FirstGiving. Peer-to-peer fundraising is when an organization empowers their supporters to raise money (from their peers) on the organization’s behalf. When you register for the 2016 Horsetooth Open Water Swim you will have the option to create a fundraising page, email donor requests and raise donotations for TEAM Wellness& Prevention. The top fundraisers will receive gifts and incentives for their fundraising efforts.
