La Jolla Open Water Swim

A one mile swim to celebrate over 100 years of competitive swimming in La Jolla Cove


Scripps Park and La Jolla Cove offer protected entry and exit points, protected waters with access to nearby caves, rich marine life and impressive views of the coast. The event will start and finish at the cove and take advantage of Scripps Park for pre- and post-race activities.
