City Splash, the yearly (and rare!) opportunity for swimmers to jump into the Charles River, is set for Saturday, June 15.

This year, for the first time, City Splash is being hosted by The Charles River Conservancy. Experienced swimmers are invited to register for the state-sanctioned swim to celebrate the Charles River’s comeback and its designation by the EPA as one of the cleanest urban rivers in the country. Registration opens in May.

Earlier in the day the Charles River Swimming Club will host its one-mile race, which will run in a loop between the Harvard and Longfellow Bridges. Registration is open and will continue until Friday June 14.

To cap off the day, participants are invited to carbo-load at Za’s in Cambridge and enjoy the bragging rights that go with swimming in the Charles.
