It's Back and Better than Ever!
Diamond Lake Open Water Challenge is an intimate open water swim race that provides swimmers of all abilities a distance suited to their individual needs: 2.5K, 5K, and 10K. Whether you're training for a Triathlon or getting ready for the open water swim season, Diamond Lake is the perfect place to kick-start your season

"The stillness and serenity of Diamond lake is worth the trip alone. I have loved the fact that after every DLOC you get to sit down and spend time with the other swimmers and really get to know the race directors too.  Everyone on the island knows about the race and it really makes you feel at home.  Great people, great food and every year it gets better and better, I can't wait for this year!" 2010 Diamond Lake participant.  Click the registration link to begin your 2013 Swim DLOC registration.
