Ep. 1: Exploring Winter SwimRun in Switzerland: Lake Zurich

Welcome to Episode 1 of my Vlog: Adventures with Jeff Grant. Join me as I take on a winter open water in a 7 degree C (44 F) lake in Switzerland. Today’s micro-adventure is a Swimrun (run+swim+run).

Just because it’s gray and cold outside doesn’t mean adventure time should wait! One of my favorite swims in the summer is around a natural and scenic section of Lake Zurich called the Au Peninsula (German: Halbinsel Au). It’s located on the Swiss Zürichsee lakeshore in the village of Au. I love the nature of this area and also love that the village name sounds like “ow!” in English.

Be careful with your cold water challenges

This goes without saying, but please be super careful with any cold water adventures you’re inspired to take on. I have a lot of experience in this domain and after 20+ years of ultra endurance sports, I know my body very well. That said, I also take steps to mitigate risk, including the gear I use, safety gear I have on hand, informing others, and locating myself in riskier swims near people on shore.

Have a great day!
