Great Chesapeake Bay 4.4 Mile Swim & 1 Mile Bay Challenge

Sun June 9, 2024 Stevensville Libby's Coastal Kitchen, MD 21666 US


Please keep in mind, there is NO PARKING at Libbey's Coastal Kitchen (357 Pier 1 Road, Stevensville, MD). We will have staff and volunteers at the entrance to all lots, and if you are there to spectate or participate, you will be redirected to one of the parking areas. 

Because of this, we invite you to bring all of the necessary (key word... necessary) clothes that you will need for the finish of the event. We will be supplying drop bags to place your personal items in and, for our 4.4 mile swimmers, these will be brought over to the finish line. For our 1 mile swimmers, you will be able to place your bag in the appropriately marked area as well, for after the swim. 




     **Please note that this parking area is ONLY for 4.4 mile swimmers. This shuttle will be going directly from this lot to the Sandy Point State Park. NO                       

         SPECTATORS will be allowed on this shuttle.**

PARKING AREA 2 - KENT ISLAND HIGH SCHOOL (900 Love Point Road, Stevensville, MD)

     NEW this year! We will be using the larger parking area at Kent Island High School this year, for ALL additional parking. This means:

  • 4.4 Mile Swimmers who did not find a spot at the Park and Ride (Location 1)
  • ALL 1 Mile Swimmers
  • ALL Spectators wishing to go to the finish line area, and cheer on their swimmer

There will be signs, designating which shuttles are going to Sandy Point State Park (ATHLETES ONLY) and which is going to the 1 Mile Start/Finish (which is also the 4.4 mile finish) which both ATHLETES and SPECTATORS should go on. 

A few questions...

1) Can I just have my person take me over to the start line, for the 4.4 mile swim, at Sandy Point State Park?

  • Yes, if you feel lucky.... The only guaranteed way to make sure that you are at Sandy Point on time, is to take a shuttle. We have a bypass line for our shuttles to get into Sandy Point State Park, no matter how many cars are in line. That luxury is NOT extended to any other vehicles. Our suggestion, have your person drop you off at a shuttle location, and then they can drive over to Sandy Point and hopefully get in. 

2) Can my spectator take the shuttle over to the 4.4 mile start with me, and catch a ride back?

  • No, they cannot. There are no spectators allowed on the 4.4 mile shuttles. 

3) How will my person get to the finish line to see me?

  • Your person needs to take one of the 1 Mile Swim shuttles, and they will see you at the finish. 

4) I have a 4 legged friend that wants to "see" me finish. How do they get there?

  • Our suggestion is that you leave your 4 legged friends home for the event. If that is not a possibility, then some folks parked at the Park and Ride last year, and walked over to the finish line. If they do this, BE CAREFUL. 

 5) How do we get back to our cars?

  • As soon as we are able to start, we will be having the shuttles start a continuous loop, from Libbeys, to the Park and Ride, to the High School, and back. This will ensure that EVERYONE gets back to their cars.
