Join us for a swim in Green Lake! We meet at the bench/cove just north of the lifeguard area and then swim for any distance you like. A brightly colored swim cap, a buoy for safety and a wet suit are all highly recommended. The wet suit is especially helpful early in the season but is not necessary. Please arrive at 6 to sign waivers and listen to the safety briefing. We will plan to start swimming at 6:15.
NOTE: Green Lake is VERY cold right now! You have been warned 😁
*** RSVP's and Electronic Waivers will be checked at 5PM, RSVP's will be closed at that time, anyone who comes and didn't RSVP will need to sign the paper waiver upon arrival, no exceptions!! The more paper waiver signatures that need to be gathered the longer it takes for the host to be ready! SO SIGN UP EARLY AND SIGN THE ELECTRONIC WAIVER!! ***
Please post in the comments below how far you are looking to swim and feel free to ask any questions.
In order to participate in any SGLTG event, you must sign a waiver. Paid members must sign the paid member waiver once per year. Non-paid members must sign a non-member waiver for every event that they attend. In hopes of expediting the waiver process at each event, please sign your waivers electronically by using the following link --
-- Again, if your a paid member you will need to log in and sign the waiver ONLY once for 2019, if not then there is a separate link on that page for the non-paid members waiver.
By RSVPing for this and any Seattle Green Lake Triathlon Group (SGLTG) event I agree to the following:
I know that triathlon (swimming/biking/running) and participating in SGLTG events are potentially hazardous activities. I should not participate in group activities unless I am medically able and properly trained. I assume all risks associated with triathlon and participating in SGLTG events including but not limiting to, falls, contact with other participants, the effects of the weather including high heat and/or humidity, the conditions of the road and traffic on the various courses and routes, water conditions including but not limited to temperature and visibility, and such risk being known and appreciated by me. Having read this waiver and knowing these facts, and in consideration of my attendance at this event, I for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release the Seattle Green Lake Triathlon Group, and all sponsors, their representatives and successors from all claims or liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation in this activity even though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of the person named in this waiver. I further grant permission to all of the foregoing to use any photographs, motion pictures, recordings, or any other record of this event for any legitimate purpose.
