NYC SWIM

    Final Race Results Are Now Posted

    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 across the East River between Brooklyn and Manhattan, in the shadow of the most famous bridge in the world. Scheduled for July 15, all swimmers should have this on a list of the races to do this summer.

    Date:07/15/2012 (Sunday) 
    Distance:1 K 
    Predicted Water Conditions:Approximately 70 to 75 degrees. Wetsuits/non-traditional swim attire may be worn but may affect a swimmer's eligibility 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. For additional information on swimming and water quality in the Hudson River, please see our FAQ page.
