Charles River Swim in the Charles River organized by the Charles River Swimming Club in Cambridge, Massachusetts
The Charles River is an 80 mile (129 km) long river that flows in an overall northeasterly direction in eastern Massachusetts. From its source in Hopkinton, the river travels through 23 cities and towns until reaching the Atlantic Ocean at Boston. It is also sometimes called the River Charles or simply the Charles and is site of the Charles River Swim hosted annually by the Charles River Swimming Club in June.

The Charles River is fed by 80 brooks and streams and several major aquifers. While the Boston Marathon course is 26 miles from Hopkinton to Boston, the slow-moving Charles River meanders 80 miles between the same points.
