Creatively Colorful Coney Island Open Water Swimming

Creatively Colorful Coney Island Open Water Swimming

The new Veterans Day Charity Swim is a cold-water swim between the legendary Coney Island and Brighton Beach in Brooklyn, New York on November 6th.

Benefits from the 1-mile, 2-mile and 5K races, with wetsuit and non-wetsuit divisions, benefit Service Women’s Action Network and the Wounded Warrior Project.

In a classic touch of innovation and safety, in the Veterans 5K race, swimmers can switch to a smaller distance mid-race if they feel that the cold is too much for them.

CIBBOWS (Coney Island Brighton Beach Open Water Swimmers) sponsor 3 swims – each with outstanding, colorful posters.

The Grimaldo’s Mile is traditionally held in late June and the Aquarium 5K and Mile is held annually in early August near the Coney Island Pier.
