Manhattan Island Marathon Swim

On June 6, 2009 NYC Swim will present the annual 28.5 Mile Manhattan Island Marathon Swim. This is our longest and premier event of the season, a full counter-clockwise circumnavigation of the island of Manhattan. (This is also the only around-Manhattan swim being offered in 2009. There are no 'Quiet Swims' this year.)

Registration for this event is closed and the waitlist is full. Please consider enrolling as a volunteer for this event.
