Molokai Channel Virtual Swim Challenge Winners Announced

posted by Michelle Bell | February 21, 2019

We moved our Virtual Swim Challenge to warmer waters this year. Participants were challenged to swim the 26-mile Molokai Channel in Hawaii beginning January 1 and they had 48 days to complete the challenge.

Christine Lay and Jim Lowe went back and forth throughout the challenge so we decided to declare a male and a female winner in the 19 & over division. Christine completed the challenge in 23 days with a total swim time of 13 hours and 36 minutes. Jim completed the challenge in 22 days with a total swim time of 15 hours and 46 minutes.

Joseph Lynch was the winner in the 18 & under division.

In addition to the T-shirts all finishers get, each winner also will receive a $15 gift card to Swim Outlet.

Congratulations to our winners and to everyone who accepted the challenge!
