Mighty Mac Swim Becomes Official Race Competition


Mighty Mac Swim event director, Jim Dreyer, announced that the annual Labor Day swim along the Mackinac Bridge will now be an offical race competition starting in 2016.

“We are proud to announce that the World Open Water Swimming Association, our sanctioning organization, has added the Mighty Mac Swim to the World Open Water Swimming Series, and our epic swim across the beautiful, but treacherous, Straits of Mackinac will be recognized as the Michigan Open Water Championship,” Dreyer says.

The 2016 event will award $20,000 to the overall male and female winners of the race.
