C3 SUMMER WED NIGHT OPEN WATER SWIM RACES & BBQ

C3 SUMMER WED NIGHT OPEN WATER SWIM RACES & BBQ

C3 has our own clean, warm, safe quarry for swimming. No weeds, a sandy beach, and swim buoys around the entire loop for great observation.  The C3 James Dick Quarry has become famous in the GTA when Lake Ontario is too cold or wavy and other local smaller GTA lakes are too weedy or higher pollution counts when the summer heats up.  This retired sand quarry is the perfect place to swim many times a month.  Twice in 2018, C3 will have their traditional Open Water Swim Race and BBQ.  The races range from 400m, 1k, 2k, 4k, and 10k race distance. To not compete with the busy weekend activities, the events occur on Wednesday nights and are followed by a great social BBQ right on the beach. 

2018 event dates are Wed evening June 27th and Wed evening July 25th.   All ages are encouraged.  C3 full year Triathlon, and quarry programs have the two swim-BBQ events incorporated into their membership at no extra price.  Those who are not C3 members are fully encouraged to register and bring out friends.  Roughly 1/3 of the participants are triathletes working on their open water speed, 1/3 are open water swim racers looking for some fun competition and 1/3 are general fitness people looking for a fun summer project.  Add in a post race BBQ and some draw prizes and you have an incredible evening.
