The French Creek SwimRun is an Otillo style event where participants will participate in swimming, running, or a combination of both.

So, what’s in store for you?

We will be launching from the boat ramp at the Lock 60 Recreation Area. Please carpool if possible as space is limited. Use GPS address of 400 Towpath Rd., Oaks, PA, but make sure to park at the boat ramp before the lock!

Registration Closes Friday August 25th, at 12pm.

Race Day Registration will be available, for an additional fee.

We will follow the USAT Wetsuit rule of 78º temperature threshold. Should the water temperature exceed 78º, anyone wearing a wetsuit will not be counted in the official results. Should the water temperature exceed 84º F, no wetsuits may be worn. Water temperature is likely to be above 78º in early August.

We will have a number of kayak and boat supports along the course.
