Spring Equinox Sunset River Swim & Paddle
Kayakers | SUP's | Swimmers
2.2 miles from the Fuller Warren Bridge to Metropolitan Park Marina
The swim should take about 45 minutes with the ebb tide. Sunset is at 7:38 so we should be in the water by 6:30. Click here for Schedule.
Kayaker and paddle-board escorts should bring two Personal Flotation Devices, one for themselves and one for the swimmer.
Swimmers must have solid open water experience and be able to swim in a group for an hour. All swimmers must wear a bright cap.
Our ratio of swimmers to kayak escorts is 2 to 1. Our preference is that you team up with someone and arrange for your own kayak escort! That would help out a lot!
If you would like to paddle board or kayak with us post here or send me a message!
Please read Rules & Guidelines.
We need a couple of volunteers to transport swimmers from the finish location where they will drop off their cars to the starting location!
Beers and Food at 5-Points afterwards!

Heading to Metropolitan Park Marina.
Stay well to the right of the platform before moving in toward the dock. Swim parallel to the dock before making a left turn to land.
Make a left and use ladder provided to exit. Note the gradual landing. If you're to far out it will be difficult to make a hard left and swim back against a strong current.
