FREE 1 Mile Run & Swim Manhattan Beach Pier

Note:  This swim is for EXPERIENCED Swimmers who are comfortable swimming ONE MILE in the ocean.  There will be NO coach, NO lifeguards, and NO instruction.  This is NOT a Beginners swim.

We will be swimming every Tuesday and Thursday at 6:00 AM now through the rest of the summer. We'll meet at the Manhattan Beach Pier (upper level above the sand), walk down to the sand where we'll drop off our stuff, jog south down to the big yellow house at 28th Street in Hermosa Beach, start swimming there and swim north to the north side of the Manhattan Beach Pier. That will be one mile and will take us about a half hour.

      Hi Christine. I will never be able to swim after 9:30 because I have to work in the morning. I know Ed does too...Don't worry about that shark--he swam back out to deeper water. :)

    Has the shark attack scared all swimmers away? Or are the swims still on?

      Carlos--the day after Saturday's attack, our Sunday group came out in full force. We all swam and we all had a great time. Other groups and other swimmers came out to swim as well. Had that shark not been caught on a fishing line, none of us would have ever known he was out there...(along with all the other sharks.) So don't let it stop you! :)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
