Swim Training - Orange County Triathlon Club

Update 10/28/09 - Any members with questions, please visit the OCTriClub.com website. For specfic dates and times click on the Calendar link.


For OCTC members the ocean swims are on again. I really want to go swim but I'm so busy with stuff before my trip that I can't. I will definitely be joining the swims after I get back because I'll have some triathlon races planned. Here are the details for the swim:

Corona del Mar swim will start this Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
Meet Luiz at the life guard station furthest to the right when facing the ocean; look for our OC Tri Club banner. Be ready to be IN THE WATER at 5:30 p.m.

There's another swim again on Sunday at 8:30 a.m. In addition to the swim on Sunday, Luiz will be leading XTerra Mountain bike training at Crystal Cove State Park at 10 a.m. This is a great opportunity for road racers to get some cross-
functional training.

Here are the directions to the Corona del Mar swim:
Corona Del Mar (Big Corona Beach)

Intersection of Iris Ave and Ocean Blvd
Corona Del Mar, CA 92625

From PCH, head south on Marguerite. It will dead end at Ocean Blvd – go right. Just before the intersection with Iris Ave, there is an access road on the left heading down to the beach. The beach at the bottom of this road is where we meet, but the parking fees are pretty high ($8 weekdays, $10 weekends). You can park for free anywhere on Ocean or the surrounding streets, then walk down the road to the beach.

Just saw the entry about ocean swims each Thursday, but it's from 2006 and I'm wondering if you still do them?

10/28/09 - Yes, the OC Tri Club is still doing the Corona Del Mar ocean training swims. Visit OCTriClub.com and click on the Calendar link to see days. The schedule changes from time to time and throughout the season. Some years there are more dates during the key race months than off season.
