Pier to Cove Swim
Saturday, June 25, 2011
Join the La Jolla Cove Swim Club for our annual Scripps Pier to La Jolla Cove Swim.
Swim distance is 1.5 miles (2.5 K). The swim will start on the north side of Scripps pier at 9 AM.
San Diego Lifeguards will provide support including a boat, jet skis, and paddleboards. Swimmer safety is our first priority.
The race will finish at La Jolla Cove, where hot and cold drinks and Chevy’s Mexican food will be served.
Registration and check-in will begin at 7:30 AM in Scripps’ parking lot just south of the Pier. Parking is limited.
NEW: There is a 90 minute time limit for this swim. After 90 minutes, you will be removed from the water by lifeguards.
If you need a ride to the Pier, we will offer free shuttle services from the Cove to the Pier starting at 8 AM. Swimmers may leave their belongings with event volunteers, who will shuttle them back to the Cove, where they will be watched.
Swimmers may wear wetsuits, fins, masks and snorkels, but this will be considered “non-regulation”.
Trophies will be awarded to the 1st place male and female “regulation” swimmers. There are no awards for non-regulation.
For insurance purposes, all participants must be members of the La Jolla Cove Swim Club.
For those who are not members, we offer a half-year membership for this event (see below).
A free event T-shirt will be included only for entries received in the PO Box or on Active.com by June 17.
Postmark date will not count. Mail early or take it directly to the post office in La Jolla.
Event T shirts will not be provided for entries received after June 17.
Beach registrations will not get a T-shirt, as it will be after June 17.
The only way to get a T-shirt is to Pre-register by June 17. We will not be ordering extra event T-shirts for sale.
