Grimaldo's Mile race

Virtual Grimaldo’s Mile XVI 2020 – Extended!


We miss events, we miss the fun of racing, and we miss you, our swimming community! We didn’t want to go a whole season without our quintessential NYC open water 1 mile swim – Grimaldo’s Mile. So this year, we’re going virtual! This is the perfect distance to challenge your friends and have some fun!

You can swim your mile anywhere you want and any time you want from August 15 – September 13 – as long as you swim your mile continuously. This event is FREE and open to all. You’ll get a certificate of completion and bragging rights to your friends.

To find out more and register for the event, visit our web page.

Use the hashtag #GMXVI2020 on social media or send us the photos at You can also post in our Strava group.

Above all else, have fun and stay safe!
