The Little Red Lighthouse swim is a 5.85 Mile swim from Clinton Cove (Pier 96), Hudson River Park at 56th Street to 165th Street, within view of the Little Red Lighthouse. This event's course has evolved over the years. This season we're swimming north, with the current, toward the Lighthouse. This event is named, of course, after the Little Red Lighthouse that sits under the GW Bridge on the Manhattan side of the Hudson river.
After the event, all racers, volunteers, and their friends are invited to join the NYC Swim staff at Coogan's Restaurant (Broadway at 169th Street) for an informal pay-as-you-go party.
