Utah Open Water

Josh created Utah Open Water as a forum for local swimmers in the Wasatch Front to get together and team up for group swims. Utah Open Water is becoming the central place for corroboration among swimmers in northern Utah.

Great Salt Lake Open Water Marathon

Josh conducted research on the Great Salt Lake and found that the first event was held in 1926 and continued for many years up to 1941. He decided to work with his swimming partner, Gordon Gridley, and reorganize the race along with introducing a one mile event for new open water swimmers. The event was held on June 11, 2011 and was a great success. It will be held annually in June with the next event on June 9, 2012.

Bountiful Lake

A virtual open water race has been named in honor of Josh. It is 0.7 miles and is held in Bountiful Lake. Those who break the record for the race earn the right to the race trophy, and are listed in the record books!
