Swim Ocean City 2018

The nine mile Swim Ocean City event will take place July 21, 2018. This is a charity event but still very reasonable for a nine mile ocean swim. You swim the length of Ocean City, MD parallel to shore so it is a great swim for those who don't like being too far from land. It has been easy some years and much harder others depending on the currents.

The Race Director @Corey puts countless hours into the event to raise funds to help those who have suffered traumatic brain injury like himself. His passion is evident throughout the event. His volunteers and the Beach Patrol all get behind this to make it a safe and enjoyable event.

We recently lost one swim in that area and I would hate to see us lose another due to lack of participation. Please consider signing up if you are looking for a challenging swim that also helps others.

I have participated in the event several times and will be back this year. Please feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions or post here for general questions. I may be able to help with transportation from BWI if you fly in Friday morning and leave early afternoon Sunday.

    This is a great event with cool water (70 F, sometimes a bit lower) . I don't understand why the 9 miler has been so sparsely populated. It's been every bit a rollicking ocean swim for the 3 years I've been there. And @Corey and his volunteers are superb.
