The registration period for the popular season-ending Boat-to-Beach race on August 29 has begun. You can sign up on Thursdays at Reef & Run until the boat reaches capacity.
To sign up, you must qualify by swimming three 1k’s and/or 1 mile anytime throughout the Reef & Run season. It’s $40 for the boat ride, race to East Beach, and post-race dinner.
For those of you doing the boat swim please read ALL of the VERY IMPORTANT information below. If you are not doing the boat swim, but would like to join the after party, please see the info at the bottom of this announcement for details. Thank you!!
Boat to Beach Swim Check-In
Check-in at Sea Landing and starts at 5 p.m. We will be on the Condor Express. The boat will leave promptly at 5:45 p.m. If you are late, you will miss the boat and the race.
Personal Items on the Boat
We will have trash bags (NOT dry bags) to transport MINIMAL clothing and personal items from the boat into East Beach on paddle boards. Please no backpacks or duffel bags. I will not let you on board the boat with a big bag. (Think: shorts, flip-flops, t-shirt in a grocery bag).
Things can possibly get wet during the transport, so no important items please. We will NOT be responsible for wet cell phones. The trash bags will not be delivered to the beach until AFTER the race is completed, so do not put any important items in the bags (like keys you need to get into your car). You can drop off all your items that you need for the after party at East Beach before the swim, starting at 3:30pm. They will be in the secure fenced area of the storage containers.
Post-Race Check-In at East Beach
The boat will be leaving Sea Landing, but we WILL NOT be returning to Sea Landing. You will be swimming into East Beach and checking in again, post-swim, at East Beach to get your meal ticket, drink tickets, and swimmer-only raffle.
Transportation to Sea Landing ~ Post-Race Clothing / Shower Items
Reef & Run will NOT be providing transportation from East Beach to Sea Landing. We suggest you coordinate a carpool with other Boat to Beach participants to leave a car at East Beach and your warm, post-race clothes at the finish site. You can drop off post-race bags at East Beach before the event, starting at 3:30pm.
