Around the Island Marathon

The Around The Island Marathon in Atlantic City, New Jersey, U.S.A. is a 22.75-mile professional marathon swimming competition. The event was re-initiated by the Green Whales in 2019 and is part of the Jim Whelan Open Water Festival. It is a 36.2 km circumnavigation around Absecon Island on the Jersey Shore that demanded swimmers tackle the Atlantic Ocean, inlets with tidal flows, and back bay environments in the clockwise direction. The water temperatures varies from 70-79ºF (21-26ºC). Ocean currents and tides are unpredictable and came from any direction. The 55th Around the Island Marathon starts and finishes at the Atlantic City High School Boat House 3401.
