This event has been postponed until 2022 due to the recurring red tide situation happening in Tampa Bay. All registered participants have been notified via email.
The Tampa Bay Sharkfest Swim will take place at Spa Beach by the newly renovated St. Pete Pier. The 1500 meter swim course will start from the shore of Spa Beach, go around the end of the St. Pete Pier and then along the south side of the Pier, back through the viewing area of the Pier around the breakwater and back to finish on Spa Beach. It is very spectator friendly for viewing of the swim from the pier and back onto the beach. The swim will be limited to 400 swimmers.
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.
