Each year we try and make the LOST Race better. And aside from controlling the water temp (haha) we’ve been able to do that. And this year is the 9th Annual LOST Race on Saturday, Aug 13th and it is going to be the best ever!
First of all, not only are we having the classic 3.8k LOST Race, but after we had to be creative last year with the cold water, we realized that a shorter race would work really well too! So this year we will be introducing the LOST Mile too!
The LOST Mile is a great way to include more people and for some a good practice to start building their way up to the LOST Race iron-distance swim!
Next we have designed a very cool LOST Mile logo that you will have on your cap and on your new LOST Mile medals!
And one of my favorite new additions is the LOST Pint Glasses! LOSTie, John Stribany, who donated a bunch of swag last year, including the LOST coffee mugs, which were such a big hit, is at it again! Except when he offered the pint glasses, I knew that would be a hit with this crowd! You can put whatever you want in it… but I’ve already tested mine out… and it works!
But aside from the great competitive fun for everyone; from Olympic swimmers, to Ironmen, to marathon swimmers, and yes, regular swimmers too… the best part is just the swim itself. On a spectacular point-to-point coastline swim past some of the most beautiful (and expensive) homes in Canada!
