Annual Beach Day at Brighton Beach on August 7

We are joining our friends Front Runners New York for our annual beach day tentatively scheduled for Sunday, August 7. We look forward to our annual open water swimming clinic coached by our very own Onesimo Demira. Front Runners’ Multi-Sport Committee will be preparing their members for the Staten Island Triathlon, but you can still join us if you just want to relax on the beach. In case of inclement weather or hazardous conditions in the ocean, our alternative date is Sunday, August 21. More details to come soon. If you have any questions, reach out to us at: mail@tnya.org

General Information

We do not hold open water swimming practices or events on a regular basis, but some of our members often swim with our friends Coney Island & Brighton Beach Open Water Swimmers (CIBBOWS) who do have regularly swims together at the beaches in Brooklyn, including the polar bear swim on New Years’ Day in Coney Island. We also hold at least one beach day for our members (such as our Brighton Beach open water swims in Summer 2020 (details below)). In the past, our members have competed in open water swimming events such as the 20 Bridges Swim around Manhattan, New York City Triathlon, Lake George Open Water Swim, and other open water swimming competitions. Last summer, we put on our first annual pride open water swim with CIBBOWS! We will also continue to meet regularly at the beaches this summer and fall. To coordinate with our teammates going to the beach, contact us at: mail@tnya.org
