Rose Pitonof Swim (NYC)
For anyone looking for a fun marathon swim to add to their 2016 schedule I wanted to put the word out that the 17 Mile Rose Pitonof Swim still has slots for relays and solos available.
I've done this one each year since the centennial and always have an amazing time. Tons of great NYC scenery and although the length is 17 miles the swim is with the current so finishing times tend to be more in the 5-6 hour range. Details below but feel free to contact me or the organizers with any specific questions.
Date - Saturday August 13th
Location - New York City
Distance - 17 miles (with current)
Cost - $850, plus $750 fuel reimbursement (solos, relays a bit higher)
