    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).
