Events Little Red Lighthouse Swim

Little Red Lighthouse Swim

One of our oldest and most popular events, the Little Red Lighthouse Swim has a new course for 2010! Now a true 10K--possibly the largest in the world--the swim starts at the 79th Street Boat Basin Marina and ends at Inwood Canoe Club (Dyckman Street). With views of upper Manhattan and the Palisades, the swim passes right by the Little Red Lighthouse and under the magnificent George Washington Bridge. Thanks to the expected tidal assist, this is a great way to get started with longer-distance swimming.

Date:09/25/2010 (Saturday) 
Distance:10 K 
Predicted Water Conditions:Approximately 69 to 70 degrees. Swimmers wearing wetsuits, jammers, or other non-traditional swim attire will not be eligible for awards. The full wetsuit policy can be viewed here.

There can be a substantial amount of chop in the water from wind & tide action. The waterways are salt-water and there is shipping traffic. There may be random jetsam & flotsam in the waterways.
