Ready for a fast swim? Swimmers for the 4.4-mile event start from Watkins Landing and swim straight down river, with the current, to Robious Landing finish. 2.5-mile charity swimmers will be taken by boat to the Rte 288 Bridge and swim with the current back to the finish. Great way to start the season off fast.
