1-mile Cable Swim

The 1-mile race is a relatively recent addition to the annual Chris Greene event: it was first contested in 2008, but it has since become quite popular. In fact, when possible a handful of diehards will compete in BOTH races. Here are the best swims since 2008; since the race is so young, expect a lot more “movement” in these rankings in the coming years!
