In keeping with a Reef & Run tradition, this year’s season opener on Thursday, June 24th will not have any registration fees for swimmers.
We’re thrilled to welcome the swimming community back to the beach for the first Reef & Run since 2019. We’re actively working with the City of Santa Barbara to ensure a safe environment as we get back to hosting weekly events this summer.
The Reef & Run season continues every Thursday evening from June 24th to September 9th. After the season opener, it’s $15 per week to join in the fun. Anyone who is interested in purchasing a season pass can do so HERE.
We would like to offer a special thanks to presenting sponsor American Riviera Bank.
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 2021 will also feature the Mullen & Henzell Youth 1K Grand Prix Series and the Howell, Moore & Gough 12 and Under 500M Grand Prix.
