It is our pleasure to introduce the Third annual NUBBLE LIGHT CHALLENGE, taking place on Saturday morning, July 14, 2012. This year’s event will include a USAT (USA Triathlon) sanctioned 2.4 mile swim race around the “Nubble”. It will be open to 175 swimmers and their kayak escorts. The race starts on Long Sands Beach and continues out past the Nubble Lighthouse, one of the most photographed lighthouses in the US, swimming through the “gut”, the channel between the lighthouse island and the mainland. The race finishes with a sprint to Short Sands Beach. There will be food from local restaurants and awards following the race at the York Beach ball field which is one block from Short Sands Beach.
All event proceeds will benefit the Maine Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), specifically programs in the local area that help children and families affected by mental illnesses.
