PEAKS TO PORTLAND SWIM
The Peaks to Portland swim, a 2.4 mile swim from Peaks Island to East End Beach in Porltand, is intended to encourage participation for people ages 16 and older with a variety of fitness levels and competitive experiences. This year will be the 33rd annual swim but the history of the race goes back much further--traced as far back as the 1920's. The race is now organized by the YMCA of Southern Maine and is one of their major fundraisers and awareness events.
The Y is interested in putting together an exhibit if the history of the swim but there are very few photos on file that date past the 1980's. The Y is looking for old photos from past Peaks to Portland Swims. Click here if you have any photos that would help contribute to the exhibit: YMCA OF SOUTHERN MAINE
