The 500 race is limited to the 9-10 age group. The distance is approximate. It is a straight shot swim from the 2nd St. bridge to the south side of the pier. The race begins at the very end of the beach by 2nd St. Competitors swim out passed the end of the buoy line, then make a right turn to spot the pier and head for the finish. The day of the event some alternations to the course may be necessary for competitor safety. Listen for announcements on course direction just before the start.
