We are very excited to announce that our first Aquathlon of the year is finally here! Yeah!  The water is warming up and race season is underway, so come down to La Jolla Shores on Thursday, May 15th for one of the club's most well attended and exciting events.  Then stick around for pizza, salad and snacks afterwards.

For members who have not had the chance to participate in our Aquathlons, it is a swim/run event we hold once a month on a Thursday evening from May through September.  The event consists of a 1000m open ocean swim that starts in front of the Marine Room Restaurant and heads north paralleling the coast.  After the swim, our 5k run course consists of two loops down and back to the Scripps Pier.  Follow that up with tons of food and you have the makings for a great Thursday evening.

SWIM details:  
The swim is a 1000m course just off of La Jolla Shores.  Participants will start in front of the Marine Room Restaurant & head out approximately 200m before making a right at the first buoy.  From there it is a 600m swim north, paralleling the shoreline before making a right at the final buoy and heading directly in to the beach.    (Depending on the amount of sting rays reported, this will be either a beach or water start.  The decision will be made on race day)

For everyone's safety, there will be lifeguards on paddle boards patrolling the water.

RUN details:  
After coming in from the swim, participants will make their way up to transition, put on their running gear, and begin the two loop run course down to Scripps Pier and back.
**Please remember that the run course is two loops, so you'll be heading down to the pier twice for a total of 3.2 miles**
