JUNIORS 250M SWIM
A loop swim from the beach, through the surf zone out near the end of the pier and back in. Swimmers start on the beach, swim around the two buoys and finish on the beach. Must be at least 8 years old to participate. Registration includes a T-shirt, goodie bag with samples, lunch, and access to all the day’s entertainment. Plus there are trophies and passes for Pacific Park for top 3 male and female finishers in each division (8-10; 11-13; 14-16). This swim is open water through the shore break. Junior Swimmers must be comfortable in waves and the open water. We recommend that all swimmers be capable of swimming swim 500m in the pool without stopping.
Time Limit Policies - A cutoff time of 20 minutes for the 250m swim is strictly enforced. Swimmers who fail to make the cutoff time will be considered disqualified non-finishers. This cutoff time has been established to ensure the safety of swimmers. Swimmers who fail to complete the required distance under the established cutoff time will be visited by a motorized safety craft. Those swimmers will be required to swim to shore immediately.
A beach running event that is akin to Musical Chairs. The event is laid out on soft sand and the course can be up to 25 yards long. Competitors check in with Beachmaster/Race officials to receive seeding order and final start instructions. Participants line-up (laying down) facing away from the placed flags. Upon the starter’s instructions & whistled start, athletes will race down the course to grab a flag. There will always be less (1) flag per athlete in the heat contested… and this sequence will repeat until there is a winner.
