Washington’s Crossing: Swim Across the Potomac River 2019
The Washington’s Crossing is a race across the Potomac River beginning when swimmers board a Potomac Riverboat water taxi and cruise to the western point of the river where Alexandria, Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC intersect at Jones Point. From there, jump in the river, and begin the race with a water start. At the sound of the starting horn, swimmers will travel approximately 2.3 kilometers back on a well marked course, to the National Harbor beach lagoon to be greeted by the sculpture, the Awakening. Washington’s Crossing is limited to 250 swimmers. Make history and register now!
9th Annual Washington’s Crossing is Sunday June 2, 2019.
