For anyone that will be in the NYC area in July, there is a really fun open water swim on 7/22. "Grimaldo's Mile" is a great beginner's race if you are new to open water racing, and it is also a great training race for your next triathlon or longer swim. This a one mile swim at iconic Coney Island. We brought back the popular "Costume Wave" and in addition to the traditional age group prizes, there is also a prize for best costume . Wetsuit, Non-wetsuit or costume, come swim the most fun race in NYC!
