18th Annual La Jolla Cove 10 Mile Relay

A Celebration of Swimming and Community Giving

The 18th Annual La Jolla Cove 10 Mile Relay will be held on Sunday, September 29, 2019. Organize a team of up to 5 swimmers, give your team a cool name, and join fellow swimmers as we enjoy La Jolla Cove and the spirit of giving with this unique event and fundraiser.

This is a 10 mile relay swim race (or for the solo swimmers, simply a 10 mile swim). Teams of up to 5 swimmers will swim a total of 10 miles, presumably 2 miles each. Teams with fewer than 5 swimmers must also complete the full 10 miles.
• The course is a triangular 1 mile lap around marked buoys.
Swimmers must swim at least 1 mile before being relieved by the next swimmer at the water’s edge. Any swimmer may swim 2 or more miles for their team.
• Teams may divide up the laps and the order of swim any way they wish. Two swimmers from the same team cannot swim at the same time and count that as multiple laps.
The hand-off between team members is via a hand slap. The start time of the next swimmer is the same as the finish time of the previous swimmer. The finishing lap swimmer is responsible for communication of start and finish of lap.
• Timekeepers will record lap times and for each swimmer and team. Information will be posted on the wall behind the lifeguard station.
Swimmers may wear wetsuits, fins, masks and snorkels, but this will be considered for only the combined age ("fish-named") category team awards and not eligible for Top Male Team, Top Female Team or Solo  category awards.
• If your team has less than 5 members, the total combined age category will be the average age of your members times 5.




Entry fee of $70 per team swimmer ($100 per solo swimmer) will include T-shirts and swim caps for your team, and race day prizes and awards.
