2019 Santa Cruz Pier-to-Pier 10K Swim
Welcome to the 2019 Santa Cruz Pier-to-Pier. This year, the swim will go from Capitola to Santa Cruz. (WETSUITS, FINS, HAND PADDLES, PULL BUOYS, ETC. ARE NOT PERMITTED)
Monterey Bay Swimming Association will provide timing, course marking, and on-the-water boat support in the event you need assistance. Every swimmer must provide a human powered safety paddler - Kayak, Paddleboard, or SUP. Paddlers can bring their own or rent locally in Santa Cruz. We will help with rentals as needed. Rentals will be delivered to the swim start in Capitola. Personal support vessels can also be dropped off at the swim start. We'll have someone on the beach to watch them. You can then drive and park at the finish (Santa Cruz Wharf). We will meet and check in at the Santa Cruz Wharf and shuttle everyone to the start in Capitola.
