New Virtual Swim Event!

Join our new amazing interactive virtual swim –
this time we will swim the Delaware River!!

The Delaware River flows free for 330 miles from Hancock, New York through Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware into the Delaware Bay
which empties into the Atlantic Ocean.

We have partnered with ReSport, a company that will deliver an interactive virtual swim, allowing you to see where you are on the river at any time. You’ll also be able to see where other swimmers are if you choose. Click on this link to see how the map looks with a few made-up swimmers.After you register, you will receive a personalized link that allows you to log your miles. We will not use the USMS flog for this event as we have for past virtual swims.

Since the Delaware River is so long, for the first time along with solo swims we are including 3- and 4-person relay teams. Build a relay team with people you swim with or friends who swim elsewhere in NJ. Then think of a cool name for your relay.

The swim will begin on March 1 and end on July 31th . There will be custom swag and a raffle for a swim-related gift card every month.

Unbelievably, this event is FREE for all 2024 registered NJ Masters swimmers.
And for each participant, the NJ LMSC will donate $5 to the Delaware RiverKeeper Network, a nonprofit group that strives to protect the waters of the Delaware River.
