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 Morris Canal to finish at Liberty Landing Marina in Liberty State Park with a view of the new Freedom Tower in the background. The ferry fee for swimmers is included in the entry fee. This is a wonderful opportunity to enter New York Harbor through “America’s Golden Door” as Jersey City is historically known. This event is part of the Sharkfest Swim Series which hosts open water swim events across the United States and in Mexico.

Registration fee: Adult: $150 until 2/28/18, $175 until 5/31/18, $185 until 7/13/18, $200 on race day (7/14/18)
Youth (17 & Under): $60 until 7/13/18, $80 on race day (7/14/18)
