I have lived in Chattanooga now for 10 years and almost every year I participated in the Memorial Day swim across the Dam. We basically swim from the beach area on one side of the Chickamagua Dam to the "Caution Dangerous Waters" sign on the other side and back. Total distance is 1.5 miles and since i am considering doing a 4.5 mile swim in mid June, I swam a bit more after the round trip. This year we were 13 swimmers and one kind support kayaker.
