Greenwich Point One-Mile Swim Set for July 13

The 35th Annual One Mile Swim at Tod’s Point will be held on Saturday, July 13.

The event is sponsored by The Greenwich Swim Committee and the YMCA of Greenwich. All proceeds from the One Mile Swim event will go toward supporting the YMCA of Greenwich’s Swim School Scholarship Fund, helping to provide swim school instruction and critical water safety skills to local children. Last year, the event raised $2,500 after all race expenses for the YMCA of Greenwich.

With the launch of the YMCA of Greenwich’s Safety Around Water program this year, the YMCA is excited to raise more awareness of the programs and services they offer to help teach water safety skills to children living in our waterfront community.

Race start is 7:30 am and check in opens at 6:30 am. Water temperature should be around 70°F.

Heats will be by age group with colored caps provided. Wetsuits are allowed but competitors wearing wet suits will be ineligible for awards. There will be light refreshments and commemorative T-shirts for all participants.

FEES: $55.00 for entries by July 15, $65 for entries thereafter, $20 for participants 13-17 years of age. NO REFUNDS. In the unlikely event of cancellation, partial credit will be given for future Greenwich Swim Committee events. T-Shirts are only guaranteed for pre-registered swimmers.

AWARDS: In each age group, awards will be given to the top three overall and at least the top three in each age group. Age groups will be 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80+ and an Achilles division.
