The Oxford-Bellevue Sharkfest Swim will be a 1500 meter swim across the Tred Avon River from Bellevue Park to the beach at the Tred Avon Yacht Club in Oxford. It will be coincide with slack tide to allow everyone to make the crossing. The swim course follows the route of the historic Oxford-Bellevue Ferry, which started operations in 1683--that's 330 years ago!!! Water temperature should be in the high-60s to mid-70's and the swim will be ahead of the dreaded nettles season. This region, steeped in history, is also the site of the James Michener's book "Chesapeake". Post event festivities will take place in Oxford, home of the famous Scottish Highland Creamery ice cream.

PLEASE NOTE: This swim is not for novices. This event is for experienced open-water swimmers only. You should be able to swim one mile comfortably in a pool in under 40 minutes.

Swim Packets
(containing swim cap) are picked up on event day morning.
