NYC SWIM

    Preliminary Race Results Are Now Posted

    Scheduled for September 22, the Little Red Lighthouse Swim is one of our oldest and most popular events: 10.2-kilometers of Hudson River swimming that is a great way to get started with longer open water distance events. The last two years have seen innovative courses that introduced our swimmers to new sights and experiences along the Hudson. This year's course will seem a bit familiar to those who swam the event in 2010 as we return to 79th Street Boat Basin for the start; however, the 2012 swim will finish at at Dyckman Marina — adding .2-kilometers on to the old course.

    If you need a lift on race day, we are offering an optional shuttle for a nominal fee to and from all event locations, including the Conrad Hotel in lower Manhattan. Space on the shuttle is limited, so please reserve your seat by 8:00 am on Thursday, September 20.

    All volunteers who enroll in advance to assist with the race set-up, check-in and swim start will ride to the finish free of charge, so if you have family or friends who would like to come out and lend a hand, please spread the word to them.
