On June 12, 2010 NYC Swim will present the annual 28.5 Mile Manhattan Island Marathon Swim. This is our longest and premier event of the season, a full counter-clockwise circumnavigation of the island of Manhattan. (This is also the only around-Manhattan swim being offered in 2010. There are no 'Quiet Swims' scheduled this year.)
New for the 2010 event: GPS Tracking of the field and individual swimmers! Even if you can't make it to New York, you can still follow your favorite swimmers in their 28.5-mile Marathon.
For those of you interested in getting a paddlers perspective on MIMS, we invite you to read a piece about paddling for MIMS written by Richard Clifford, a veteran of more than a dozen Manhattan Island circumnavigations and numerous other paddling adventures.
