Dip & Dash Swim-Run

We are very sad to announce that this event has been canceled.  Registration is closed.  All registered participants will receive an email with choices for registration to other events or refunds.

What's the same?  It's an aquathlon – swim & run event.  Think triathlon without the bike!  There are two individual distances for the event.  The two distances are 1500 meter swim/4 mile run and a 750 meter swim/4 mile run. USAT sanctioned event and rankings eligible for Aquathlon standings.

What's new this year?   We've added back in the individual Open Water Swim for both distances for people who want to try out their racing skills with a singel loop around the buoys or a double loop around the buoys.   Plus, there is a standalone 4 mile run.  Because this is part of a USA Triathlon event you will still need to purchase a USAT one-day membership if you are not an annual member.

If you're looking to practice – you can swim two loops around the buoys at Cowell Beach and run up West Cliff to Getchell Street and back to the beach for the longer distance.  One loop around the buoys and up to Getchell and back for the shorter distance. 

What's different for this year?  Pretty much everything else.

Registration

  • Registration limit of 150 inclusive of both distances.
  • Registration must be completed online, in advance.
  • If the event is not sold out and there are race weekend or race day registrations available they must be completed on the athlete’s own phone without any physical touching of paper or race packets prior to distribution to the athlete.
  • All athlete check-in will be done electronically with no paper/pen usage except as required by staff.

Start & Finish

The event will start and finish on Cowell Beach between the Dream Inn and the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf.  We will determine wave starts based on registration numbers for each event. 

USAT's Safe Return to Racing protocols will be followed throughout the event.

 

Volunteers

There will be limited volunteer placement on the course in order to maintain social distancing but not at the expense of runner safety.  However, family and friends of athletes are encouraged to help out at the start and finish lines in order to see and support your athletes.  You may also want to volunteer at the aid-station turnaround as an opportunity to cheer runners.  Athletes will be able to follow the arrows and signs on the out and back run course.

Supporting Polio Plus

Proceeds from this event will support Rotary International's Polio Plus Program.  This horrible disease was the last worldwide epidemic and most of us don't remember it because we haven't had a polio case in the US since the 70s.  But that's not the case in other parts of the world.  Not only that, but Polio Plus has also using it's infrastructure to support COvid-19 vaccinations around the world.  I major effort that needs much more support!  You can read more about Polio Plus by clicking on the menu link at the top of the page.
