The Sylvan Lake Open Water Swim (SLOWS) is presented by RnR Premier Events. Sylvan Lake is the ideal place for an open water swim event and a weekend away in a beach destination town with plenty for family and friends to do as well.  

Falling at the perfect time of year for triathletes to allow those athletes wanting to practice their 2km race pace the week before Calgary 70.3 or Ironman Canada athletes completing the 4km distance a month before their race.
