JUST ADDED: The Colin’s Hope GOT2SWIM 10K


Sunday, September 24, 2017


We are incredibly excited to announce that Colin’s Hope is teaming up with Open Water Planet to host the Colin’s Hope GOT2SWIM 10K as part of the Open Water Planet Triton Swim Series.


We will be moving the swim to a Sunday, and will be moving one lake up the Highland Lakes chain from Lake Austin to Lake Travis. We hope to see you in the water for a BEST DAY EVER!


Distance: 10K (~6.2 miles)


Start/Finish: The course is an out and back at Mansfield Dam Park on Lake Travis- The course is being developed but we promise a scenic and well protected route.


Three participation options:




  • Solo Swimmer (must have Kayak Water Guardian)


  • 2-person relay*


  • 3-person relay. Tandem kayak required.*




*In relays, swimmers “Water Guardian” for each other in kayaks. One swimmer will be in the water, while the non-swimmers are in a kayak paddling alongside the swimmer. There are not set relay switch points. The team decides when and how often to switch. Each swimmer does NOT have to swim equal distance.


All swimmers will be required to raise a minimum of $500. These funds will go directly to Colin’s Hope to support our mission to raise water safety awareness to prevent drowning.
