Organizers of the Riverkeeper 4K swim will expand the race in its third year, adding two new distances and pushing their fundraising goal to new heights.

The original interprovincial long distance races will have swimmers cross the Ottawa River on Aug. 6, starting at Lac Deschênes Sailing Club, 10 Rangeview Ave., in Ottawa and finishing at Parc des Cèdres, near the Voyageurs pathway in Aylmer, four kilometres away.
