This remains an unsanctioned marine event and poses risks to the participants and other users of the waterways during the 7.5 mile /12 km course. The fast-moving current, large number of participants, lack of lifejackets, alcohol consumption, potentially challenging weather conditions, water temperature, and limited rescue resources can create difficult emergency response scenarios that can result in serious injuries or fatalities.
