IMPORTANT: Statue of Liberty Swim Date Change

    The Statue of Liberty Swim will NOT take place Friday, June 6. Instead, the tentative new date and time is early morning on either Friday, August 29, or Saturday, August 30 (Labor Day weekend). Please check back in a few weeks for the new date, and all enrollments will be transferred to this new date.The change is necessary due to the much-expanded D-Day activities at the Statue of Liberty and NYC Swim’s modest enrollment numbers, which at under 150 are less than half the count we expected to have based on previous events. The National Parks Service will not permit its partners and their employees to work the overtime necessary to support the event at its current size. We will redouble our promotional efforts between now and August to ensure the necessary enrollment.Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.

    Shifting Course

    If you have ever wanted to swim underneath the Brooklyn Bridge or look up at Lady Liberty from the water, make 2014 the summer you do so. This will likely be the final season from many of our shorter events due to the increasing complexity and expense of organizing them. We love these swims and all of you and greatly appreciate your support. For more information click here. See you in the water!

    About Us

    Since its founding two decades ago, NYC Swim has attracted nearly 20,000 participants to more than 135 swimming races, reviving a local aquatic tradition that had been abandoned for nearly a century. Its premier events showcase many of the sights that make New York famous:  the Statue of Liberty, Manhattan Island, Brooklyn Bridge, and Governors Island. In 2013, NYC Swim will host over a dozen events including a multi-sport race and swims ranging from a fun half-mile to four marathon swims, among them the centennial Ederle Swim (formerly the Tribune Marathon Swim).
