Event Details

One Epic Virtual lake swim, dozens of real benefits for both you and Michigan's State Parks!

Epic Races is proud to present Heart MI Lake! Enjoy the wonders of Michigan’s lakes — with our Heart MI Lake Virtual Race, the perfect way to celebrate summer and Michigan’s state parks.

A portion of this event’s proceeds benefit our featured charity, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources which is celebrating 100 years of Michigan State Parks this year!

Anybody can participate: you only need a swimsuit, goggles, and a Michigan state park. If a Michigan state park is not accessible, you may choose your own location.

    WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?

A Virtual Race can be done at any time and any location. You can swim at your own pace with your favorite swimming buddies, whenever and wherever you like! There are no parking problems. No crowds. No long port-a-potty lines. There is no start gun or nervous, pre-race chitchat with other participants. There is not even a starting line! Choose your date, time, place, partners, and competition and go!
