The Traversata of the Lugano Lake is a non competitive community swim 2500mt long
accessible to anybody.

The event takes place on the traditional course
that starts from Caprino and finishes at the Lido di Lugano,
crossing the 46th parallel north.

Absolute record: never seen so many before!

Not one buoy left! The 86th edition of the Traversata del lago Ceresio hit a new record of participants: 800. Blessed by the beautiful weather, the swimmers enjoyed the small cruise on the boat to Caprino before diving into the emerald green and warm (24 degrees) waters of the lake to swim back to the Lido di Lugano. An edition made even more special by the renewed mini-traversata, an event that saw 50 young boys and girls swimming beyond the limit of the safety raft to take on the challenge of the open waters…
So thank you everyone and good training for next year’s edition: Sunday, 18th August 2019!

The list of participants with their times of arrival is available in the Editions page
