Pier 2 Pier Swim in memory of Ryan Alea Young





This year, we are excited to be adding a NEW Division to our race. A Collegiate and USA Swimming Club Division. Each team's score will be comprised of the fastest two females and two male swimmers. Their overall combined time will make their team’s best time. The team with the fastest time will WIN a traveling first place trophy and lots of social media buzz.  They will then have the opportunity to return the trophy to defend their title next tear.

Be sure to enter your College/Club name upon registration!


This open water ocean swim is in its 13th year and is held at beautiful Wrightsville Beach.  The swim is approximately 1.7 miles point to point between Johnny Mercer Pier and Crystal Pier with prevailing current.
