There is very limited space available for this event because swimmers will be on boats during the day. Swim Across America has 14 spots on the boats available. If you are interested in participating, sign up for the Chicago Open Water Swim with a goal of at least $2,500. Once you reach that goal, we will reach out to you to invite you to be a part of the relay event.
