June 12, 2021 (subject to change based on COVID status)
Huntington Beach Pier, 30 Main Street
The 2021 HB Pier Swim will be modified from previous years due to the COVID-19 restrictions with a swim starting every 15 minutes with no more than 25 people at a time making their way through the starting arch to begin their individual time. Swimmers will arrive 15 minutes before their race times and will leave the area after their swim. Times will be posted online after all the races have been completed. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the City will not be having an awards ceremony. Awards will be given to the top 3 winners of each division, which will be online and the overall team winner's name will be engraved on the Gene Belshe Memorial Perpetual Trophy. Registrations will only be available online. There will be no day of “beach registration” or t-shirt sales. Register at www.HBSands.org and search by activity number 311212. Sign-ups received before May 26, will include a t-shirt. The last day to register will be June 9. Each participant will receive an email with your race start time which will be between 8:30 am - 11:00 am. If you have questions please email or call Recreation Supervisor John Valinsky [email protected] or 714 960-8870.
