Members of the St. Paul Barracudas swim club swam an impressive 3,827 laps on Thursday afternoon, which equals 97 km, completed by just 40 kids.

The annual swim-a-thon raises funds for the club, and challenges young athletes to complete as many laps as they can within two hours.

Even the youngest swimmers, who were barely school-aged, offered some impressive performances. The older, more experienced swimmers completed up to 200 laps in the two-hour time frame.

According to results from the event, Catianna Culham, Alex Ryning, and Ashlynn Trefenanko all managed to hit the 200-lap mark on Thursday.

A number of other club members broke the 100-mark, including the following:

Nick Bromberger – 120

Kayley Hannin – 130

Eve Michaud – 118

Kori Kozicki – 130

Marla Sachko – 140

Grace Burton – 130

Morgan Nickel – 196

Lizzy Nickel – 110

Kaydence Hunter – 146

Alexa Labrie – 104

Trish Labrie – 104

Katie Ryning – 114

Laura Ryning – 108

Shawn Lysons – 144

Savannah Fontaine – 102

Mercedes Trefenanko – 188

A total amount fundraised through the swim-a-thon had yet to be calculated.
