Swim & Paddle the South River celebrates outdoor recreation in the Chesapeake Bay region with a self paced swim or paddle event! The event benefits the conservation efforts of the Arundel Rivers Federation and is fun for the whole family!
Our mission is to both platform the awesomeness of outdoor recreation on our Rivers and to support the efforts of the Arundel Rivers Federation! We are a gathering of novice swimmers and accomplished marathon distance swimmers & paddlers enjoying and celebrating all that our region affords us! Whether you want an endurance adventure of 5 MILES or a shorter 1/2 MILE LOOP to enjoy the South River bounties, this event has it!
