Hermosa Beach Pier: 1101 Strand, Hermosa Beach, United States
The Dwight Crum Pier to Pier Swim is one of the most popular ocean swims in the country. 2018 marks the 57th consecutive year that this annual swim has been conducted. The course for this challenging 2-mile rough water swim is from the south side of the Hermosa Beach Pier to the north side of the Manhattan Beach Pier.
Any contestant who did NOT comptete in the 2017 Pier-to-Pier swim must pass a 500-meter "check out" swim. Dates for the check out swim will be July 14, 21 and 22 (between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.) on the south side of the Hermosa Beach Pier. Decision of lifeguards at "check out" is final. 2017 Dwight Crum Pier-to-Pier Swim finishers are exempt from the "check out" swim.
Online registration and payment must be completed prior to the check out swim. Entrants failing to meet the check out standards will be given a full refund. No other refunds will be issued.
Registration for all entrants closes at midnight July 22, 2017. There will be NO race day sign-ups.
The swim will be conducted in three heats: The first heat (Male Swimsuit Division) will start at 9:00 a.m; the second heat (Female Swimsuit and Female Wetsuit Divisions) will start at 9:05 a.m; the third heat (Male Wetsuit Division) will start at 9:10 a.m.
