Four Swymnuts traveled up to Lake Tahoe to swim in the TransTahoe Relay. This is truly one of the best and most beautiful open water venues out there! Despite the reputation of Lake Tahoe being very cold, word has it that this year it was in the high 60s and quite lovely. No wetsuits are allowed at this event! All four said they’d do it again in a heartbeat. Congrats to each of our hearty and nutty Swymnuts!

  • Stacey Ellison – who swam on The Pirates who were in the Open Division. Their relay finished in a time of 4:29.40
  • Cathy Stone & Terry Powers – who swam on A Family Stone who were in the Mixed 180+ group and finished in a time of 5:17.48 (Cathy, hubby Mike, their kids and Terry who is adopted now into their family)
  • Erica Sutherland – who swam with The North Bay Nautigals group who were also in the Open Division. They finished in a 4:38.48

Next year we’re planning on targeting this as a team effort, so let Coach Cokie know if you are interested. In 2015 the date for TransTahoe is Saturday, July 18th. Ideally, you’ll drive up Friday, swim the event Saturday and either come home Saturday night or add another night in Tahoe and make it a weekend!

Full results of this year’s TransTahoe can be found here.
