Huntington / Cold Spring Harbor 1 & 2 Mile Swim Is Almost Here!

At 5AM on Sunday morning, June 26, 2011, there will be a last-minute weather check and if necessary, a cancellation notice will be emailed to the nearly 200 swimmers for this first-ever swim. The good news is that as of today, (Friday), the weather people are pretty sure that these pesky thunderstorms that have been hitting Long Island for the last couple of days should be gone for good... or at least for Sunday... leaving us with blue skies and puffy white clouds for the check-in, the swim and awards!  

Thanks to all the Volunteers and the Race Committee members, especially Event Directors Rob Ripp and Colleen Driscoll. Check back after the race -- we hope to be publishing LOTS of pictures of what promises to be a great event!
