How many of these MOWS patches below do you own?  We've been doing this since 2003.

We love being a small, local event!  During the first four years, race participants made their own finisher medals from clay after the event.  Since then, we changed to our well known "little duck" finisher medal and a local artist/swimmer creates our four one-of-a-kind overall winner awards every year.

2003 MOWS MOWS 2003 patch

The first Madison Open Water Swim was 1.5 and 3.0 mile distance event held at Governor Nelson State Park beach on Lake Mendota.  The course was 0.75 miles and swimmers went around the course either 2 or 4 times for a 1.5 or 3.0 mile swim. After the swim, participants were able to create their own participation medals out of clay, which was then baked (hardened) on site.  There were 41 swimmers that first year and we have the very first race results.
