Portland Bridge Swim

The Portland Bridge Swim course passes under all 11 bridges on the Willamette River within the city boundaries. Swimmers must complete a qualifying swim to enter, and are required to have a support kayaker (rentals available) to swim. It is one of the longest marathon swims in the world and was named as one of America's Top 100 Open Water Swims.
