Before we announce who this year's Guest Swimmer is going to be, I wanted to do a small introduction. My name is Don Henderson and I am taking over direction of END-WET this year. The esteemed Tim Bauer will be helping me take this on. Tim needs no introduction.
We are again very excited to announce our guest swimmer for END-WET! This year, Elaine Howley will make the trip from Boston to Grand Forks and take on the 36 mile swim in the Mighty Red River of the North!
We’re excited to announce Sarah Thomas as this year’s guest swimmer at END-WET! Sarah joins the ranks of past guest swimmers Darren Miller, Jen Schumacher, and Annaleise Carr.
Sarah is an American open water marathon swimmer. She entered the ultra-distance swimming world in 2010, completing the Catalina Channel. That same year she was the US Masters Swimming (USMS) 6K open-water champion for her age group. In 2011, Sarah swam the esteemed Manhattan Island Marathon Swim (MIMS), taking 2nd female and 5th overall.
Studio 1, the University of North Dakota's in house news channel, was a constant presence during END-WET.
