Swim for Life: New route created after shark sightings in Provincetown harbor

Provincetown Swim for Life will be Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021

The 34th annual Provincetown Swim for Life is a 1.4 mile harbor crossing swim that raises money for charitable organizations like the AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod. Due to concerns about shark sightings, this year’s swim is modifying the route which in years past has started at Long Point.

The new (slightly shorter) route of 1.2 miles will begin at the Snail Road beach area and conclude at the East End Waterfront Park at 387-395A Commercial Street. Registration will continue to take place on the deck of the Boatslip at 161 Commercial Street and a trolley will take swimmers to the starting point in the East End.

Registration for this year’s swim is now open, and the minimum pledge to participate is $100. For more information about the 2021 Swim for Life visit the event website, swim4life.org/2021-swim-for-life.
