Congratulations to all
2016 Race-Huge Success!!
Thanks to all the swimmers and volunteers for making it a great race!!
ABOUT 5 YEARS AGO...we had the crazy notion of doing an open water swim around the infamous Wrightsville Beach Loop. For those that don’t know, every day, hundreds of tourists, fitness buffs, casual walkers, folks from Wilmington, and locals walk the loop around Wrightsville Beach.
HELP US SET THE RECORD
Each year we attract more and more swimmers in all shapes, sizes and abilities. This website is designed to provide complete race information so that you can have your best swim on Race Day!.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ON OCTOBER 1ST!
Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach are beautiful in the months of September and October. The race will take place 7 days into the fall season and hurricane season does not end until November 30th. The average air temperature is 75° with an average water temperature of 75-79°. The average wind speed is between 5-10 mph and usually comes from the Southwest. On race morning the expected sunrise is 7:06am with a high tide of 4.87ft at 8:11am.
