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 and the Colgate clock on the Jersey City shoreline, then into the finish in Morris Canal Park 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 through “America’s Golden Door” as Jersey City is historically known.
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.
