Great Salt Lake Open Water Marathon Swim
The Great Salt Lake Open Water Marathon Swim offers two races: 1 mile and 8 miles in the Great Salt Lake in Utah, U.S.A. The event is co-hosted and organized by Gordon Gridley and Josh Green. The 8-mile record was set by Will Reeves on 8 June 2013 in 3 hours 10 minutes.
It is one of America's Top 100 Open Water Swims.
