Thursday Night Ocean Swimming In Santa Barbara

Courtesy of Reef & Run, Santa Barbara, California. Throughout the summer months, there are plenty of ocean swims up and down the coast of California.  With its races held only on Thursday nights, the Reef & Run Series allows swimmers to participate in other summer season races throughout the summer weekends. Joseph Lastelic beat young Johnny Bish to win the 1-miler while Bish’s older sister Andrea Bish won the women’s division.  The proceeds from the season enables the Reef and Run to donate US$22,000+ to the local Junior Lifeguard program and the Nick Johnson Scholarship Fund.
