The La Jolla Cove 10 Mile Relay is one of the most anticipated and enjoyable open water swim events of the year.
Organize a team of up to 5 swimmers (or swim it solo), give your team a cool name and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow swimmers and the spirit of swimming with this unique event and charity fundraiser.
More details: 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.
Please note: This event is for experienced ocean swimmers who are prepared for a swim of 2 x 1 mile in open ocean, “rough water” conditions. We cannot guarantee the safety of swimmers, especially those who are unprepared. Each swimmer must present a signed Release of Liability when they check in on September 25th to be eligible to swim.

Update on La Jolla Cove Water Quality:
We have received questions regarding the water quality at La Jolla Cove this summer. San Diego County monitors the water at The Cove, and has from time to time posted warnings about increased bacteria levels presumably from the sea lions that are in the water, on the nearby rocks, and occasionally on the beach itself.
Having said that, La Jolla Cove remains open for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving.
Hundreds of swimmers (including our race directors) have been swimming in La Jolla Cove throughout the summer and personally have no first hand accounts of significant health issues that have arisen. However, the fact remains that County testing has detected levels of bacteria that have resulted in posted warnings. Individuals need to make their own determination about the information posted by the County as it relates to the water quality at La Jolla Cove (http://www.sdbeachinfo.com) and their involvement in the 15th Annual La Jolla Cove 10 Mile Relay.
The 10-Mile Relay is, at its heart, a charity fundraising event in support of Community Giving. The event staff is 100% volunteer. The costs to stage the event are kept to a minimum thanks to donations of services from a number of businesses and people. As such, we are able to apply a portion of your entry fee to the net proceeds that are donated to the charities we support each year. We are proud supporters of the American Diabetes Association and the San Diego Junior Lifeguard Foundation.
While not mandatory, we would hope that you would consider making an additional contribution as part of your participation in the event and to help us provide even greater support. You may do so as part of your online registration, or at the event.
