Great Hudson River Swim
7:30 am-12:00 pm
Newburgh waterfront to Beacon waterfront

The 6th annual Newburgh-to-Beacon swim is a wonderful opportunity for experienced swimmers to swim about one mile (about 72 pool lengths!) across the Hudson River while raising funds to benefit the non-profit volunteer organization River Pool at Beacon.

Splash-off at 10:30am on the Newburgh waterfront — finishing at the Beacon waterfront at about 12 noon. (Check-in from 7:30am to 9:30am.) Rain date: Sunday, July 26, 2009.

Advance registration is required by July 7, 2009 (registration limited to 250 swimmers so register early). Kayaker escorts needed too.

$40 for adults ($25 for swimmers under 18) plus $100 minimum sponsorship.

Details and registration online at the River Pool website.
