NYC SWIM

    Tentatively scheduled for September 21, 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 few years have seen innovative courses that introduced our swimmers to new sights and experiences along the Hudson.

    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.
