Follow these steps to become a HeartMILake participant:

  • Register for this event at RunSignUp; deadline to register is August 1st!
  • Set your personal goal swimming or paddling goal
    Challenge yourself, but be realistic
    Be specific (for example, I will swim half a mile; I will paddle for half an hour)
    Choose a goal that is meaningful and important to you, not to anybody else
  • Head to your chosen venue for your HeartMILake Virtual Race. This can be any lake in public lands managed by the State of Michigan Department of Natural Resources, your favorite local lake, even one of the Great Lakes.
  • Tell us about your HeartMILake! Head to the 2018 HeartMILake Facebook page, "join" the event if you haven't already, then upload a photo of your GPS tracker showing your swim/paddle and time, share a selfie of you where you did your HeartMILake, or post a comment telling us about it. You can also post your photos on Instagram and tag us (@epicraces) or tweet about it on Twitter and tag us (@epicraces). Be sure to use the hashtag #HeartMILake!
    • Note: You do not need to "prove" your HeartMILake to us. We encourage you to post about your HeartMILake via our social media, but it is not mandatory!
      For completing your swimming or paddling goal, we will send you a shirt and a medal! Because these are personal goals versus a set distance or time limit, we are not requiring any specific finish time or completed distance. All HeartMILake swag will be sent out via Priority Mail on August 28!
