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 9:00 AM.
The race will end at La Jolla Cove, where fresh Mexican food and drinks will be served.
*DUE TO COVE CONSTRUCTION:
After-Event Festivities will be set up on the larger grass area on the other side of the bathroom building.
Swimmer safety is our first priority. San Diego Lifeguards will provide support including a boat, jet skis, and paddleboards. The race will finish at La Jolla Cove, where fresh, hot Mexican food as well as hot and cold drinks will be served.
"Beach" REGISTRATION and PRE-REGISTERED CHECK-IN is 7:30 - 8:30 AM in Scripps Oceanography Parking Lot P003, just south of the Pier on El Paseo Grande, off La Jolla Shores Drive.
Parking is limited in that area, so it's best to carpool or have someone drop you off.
DO NOT PARK IN THE SCRIPPS LOT, or you’ll get a ticket.
If you need a ride to Registration, we will offer free shuttle services from the Cove starting at 7:30 AM until 8:15.
Swimmers may leave their swim bags with event volunteers in the registration area, and they will be taken back to the Cove and will be watched.
*The La Jolla Cove Swim Club is not responsible for loss.
NOTE: Rest room facilities at registration are extremely limited. We cannot change this. Plan accordingly.
Electronic Timing System will be used.
*There is a 90 minute time limit for this swim. After 90 minutes, lifeguards will escort any remaining swimmers from the water.
