Description

Sharks in New York Harbor? You can bet there will be this summer when several hundred swimmers (aka, sharks) descend there. What could be more sensational than swimming in the waters off the iconic Statue of Liberty, the most well known lady in the United States? The swim will start just outside the security zone of Liberty Island and will go past the historic Ellis Island to finish at the south cove of Battery Park City with a view of the new Freedom Tower in the background. The ferry fee for swimmers is included in the entry fee. This swim is limited, so don’t wait too long to register for a not-to-be-missed event! What a wonderful opportunity to enter New York Harbor in the shadow of Lady Liberty. 


PLEASE NOTE: This swim is not for novices. This event is for experienced open-water swimmers only. You should be able to swim one mile comfortably in a pool in under 40 minutes.
