Usually we swim alongside a coastline, sometimes around islands, but rarely do we get to cross a channel. This is your chance to swim your way from Manhattan across the East River to Brooklyn, in the shadow of the most famous bridge in the world. To add to the allure, teams from Brooklyn and Manhattan will compete in the Battle of the Bridge. After the swim, plan to enjoy an informal, pay-as-you-go brunch at the nearby Bubby's.
Swimmer registration is now closed. We have received numerous inquiries from swimmers interested in being added to a waitlist. We don't have a fair way to offer a waitlist option at this time and will not do so this year.
