Oliver Turner, an English Channel swimmer and a 3-time Manhattan Island Marathon Swim finisher, founded the Horsetooth Open Water Swim in 1999.  While he was a graduate student at Colorado State University, he came up with the idea of a long distance swim that would challenge the swimmers and also be a fundraiser for the Wingshadow Foundation. His vision had the swimmers navigate the length of the reservoir (~10 km) where in alternating years it would be swum either north to south or south to north. The first year, there were 15 brave souls that swam the reservoir north to south.
