Season opener on June 8th is free for all participants
The days are getting longer and the ocean is getting warmer, which can mean only one thing: Reef and Run!
The premier ocean swimming event on the South Coast, Reef and Run returns to East Beach in 2017 on Thursday, June 8. Swimmers hit the water at 6:30pm in front of the beautiful and historic Cabrillo Bathhouse. The season runs every Thursday evening through August 24.
We would like to offer a special thanks to returning presenting sponsor Elite Performance & Rehabilitation Center.
Since its start in 2009, Reef and Run has strived to be the best ocean swimming event in town, by swimmers, for swimmers. Reef and Run offers three different swim races: The Santa Barbara Swim Club 500-meter swim, the Santa Barbara Triathlon 1k swim and the Advanced Veterinary Specialists 1-mile swim. On select weeks, the Stuart Sato Biathlon takes swimmers out around the 1k course and then onto a soft sand run towards the harbor and back. Thanks to sponsorship by local law firms Reef and Run 2017 will also feature the Mullen & Henzell Youth 1K Grand Prix Series and the Howell, Moore & Gough 12 and Under 500M Grand Prix.
Post-race activities are held at East Beach Grill and will feature a full menu and top local bands.
See you at the beach!!
