Union Bank presents the 6th annual Reef & Run series, a weekly ocean swim series in Santa Barbara, California.

The charity swim series starts every Thursday at 6:30 pm at the beautiful Cabrillo Bathhouse at East Beach from June 5th to August 28th. The series includes the Santa Barbara Swim Club 500m swim with a separate starting point from other races to make it easier and less intimidating for new swimmers. It also includes the Santa Barbara Triathlon 1k swim, the Elite Performance 1 mile swim, and the JFM Web Design Biathlon, a 1 km swim and beach run (held on select weeks only).

The series also offers live entertainment with local bands and a great atmosphere for athletes and families follows every race in the series. Event director Jane Cairns and sponsor Joe Coito explain, “Reef & Run is committed to supporting the next generation of ocean swimmers through its support of the Santa Barbara Jr. Lifeguard program. A season pass costs US$150 or US$15 per race. Thanks to our fantastic sponsor support, the first race on June 5th, is free for everyone while local bands add to the entertainment.”
