The run has no registration fee, relying instead on the individual generosity of runners and others.

Swim Across America Swims Across the Sound
While most of us were still asleep on Saturday, Aug. 16, a steady stream of cars made their way down Landing Road at 4:45 a.m., heading to the Glen Cove Yacht Club dock. In the cars were 14 swimmers, support persons and 14 kayakers. They were the vanguard group headed to meet the transportation boats which would ferry them across Long Island Sound to Larchmont for the beginning of Swim Across America's (SAA) second Annual "Sound to the Cove - Swim to Fight Cancer." At 6:30 a.m. the group left the beach to begin the 10K (6.2 mile) swim back to Morgan Park. By 9:30 a.m., all 14 swimmers had arrived at the beach, welcomed by a crowd of more than 400 people.
