2013-07-29 · By Editor
On Tuesday July 30th, the Long Beach Junior Lifeguard Program will have their annual Stud Ironman event. Check in for participants begin at 8:00am and the competition starts at 9:00am. Family, friends, and some swim teams are also welcomed to participate.
The race will start at 1st Place and end at 72nd Place, from rock to rock jetties. The competition is a run / swim / run event that consists of running eastbound along the beach for a total of 4 miles, while stopping to swim out to 15 different buoys along the way for a total 2 miles swim. There is a 2-hour goal to complete this challenge. All Junior Guards that complete the event within 2 hours will receive a coveted “STUD IRONMAN” t-shirt.
Accomplishment of this feat is a milestone for these kids, as they have been training in the Junior Lifeguard Program for the past five weeks, leading up to this event. All are welcomed to come out and cheer them on.
A SuperMex food truck will be selling food after the event.
