8:00 am - 11:00 am
Open Water Swim: Triathlon Swim Preparation for TriLaVie Team Members.
Open Water Swim at Corona del Mar
NOTE: This open water swim is for members who are now good-to-go in ocean swimming without direct coaching or clinic needs. Still uncomfortable in the water? We can do some "water-play" and practice closer to the shore.
8:00am LATE START IN WATER: The swim will start at 8am. If you want to run before, you are welcome to do that. If you are training for 70.3, I recommend that you arrive at 7am to run your 12 miles and then enjoy a restorative swim or romp in the water!
Holiday Weekend - Guests Welcome!
Since this is Labor Day Weekend, you are invited to bring friends or family members. However, please do not let them swim if they are not totally - totally - comfortable, okay? TLV resources are focused on team goals.
Paddlers and Swim Buddies Welcome! Got a friend or family members who can be on a board with us or swim with the group to guide them? Bring them along!
