The Glen Lake Swim "The Search for Glennie" Sunday August 12th.

An exciting new USMS-sanctioned open water swim is being planned for southern New Hampshire. It is a one-mile professionally timed race at Glen Lake in Goffstown, just outside of Manchester, NH.

The event is called THE GLEN LAKE SWIM: THE SEARCH FOR GLENNIE, and will take place on Sunday August 12th, 2018. Glennie is a descendent of a creature that Native Americans of the region referred to as "Gtaskog" and the swim will pay homage to the legend.

The swim is being organized by the Manchester Marathon Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, in conjunction with the Goffstown Recreation Department and the Granite YMCA to raise funds to support local outdoor recreational activities and to promote aquatic safety.
