ABOUT FAT SALMON: The Fat Salmon Open Water Swim is the premier Open Water Swimming Event in the Seattle Area and the Northwest. Hundreds of Swimmers have participated in this event since it was first run in 1999. Competitor Magazine NW readers voted Fat Salmon #1 Open Water Swimming Event in 2011!

In the past, two swimming distances were offered to accommodate swimmers with different levels of experience and ability. For the first time, in 2013, there was only a 3.2 mile race which opened up a great opportunity for those with more experience wanting to challenge themselves with a truly long-distance event. We have a maximum number of 350 swimmers, which is mandated by the City of Seattle, regardless of whether we hold the event with one race or two. Registration opens May 1st

Fat Salmon takes place in Lake Washington, a large fresh water lake in Seattle, WA. The 3.2 mile race starts under the I-90 bridge (Day Street Boat Ramp) and follows the shore to Madison Park. See our course map for details.
