Swim to Santa Barbara at Canyonview!

POSTED BY MICHAEL
Don’t worry, you won’t be swimming in open waters! You can swim to Santa Barbara with the Swim for Fitness Incentive program simply by swimming laps at Canyonview Pool. Participants in the program can come to Canyonview Pool anytime during lap swim hours and record the yards they swam each session in the swim log binder located on the Canyonview front desk. The goal is to swim 340,000 yards (approximately 200 miles), which is equal to the distance from San Diego to Santa Barbara.

Time Estimates:

  • A participant swimming 5,000 yards/day 5x a week will take ~ 3-4 months to complete the swim
  • A participant swimming 3,000 yards/day 5x a week will take ~ 5-6 months to complete the swim
  • A participant swimming 2,000 yards/day 5x a week will take ~ 8.5 months to complete the swim
  • A participant swimming 1,000 yards/day 5x a week will take ~ 1 year and 4 months to complete the swim
The swim log binder has 113 boxes that each represent 3,000 yards, and participants shade in one when a set of 3,000 yards is completed. Once every box is shaded in, you’ve swam to Santa Barbara! IMG_0499IMG_0500IMG_0506IMG_1066 Everyone who swims the entire 340,000 yards will receive a UCSD Recreation Swim Incentive T-shirt and a spot on Canyonview’s Wall of Fame to recognize their grand accomplishment. This is a great program for recreational swimmers who want to challenge themselves to swim greater distances on a regular basis. Since the program has no specific start and end date, it is a good, healthy way to take a break from studying and get active anytime throughout the year. *no Master’s swimmers please So join in, get wet, have fun, and stay fit by starting your swim to Santa Barbara today! Lap swim hours can be found by clickinghere. Any questions can be answered by calling Canyonview Aquatic Center at (858) 534-5375 or by visiting their location.
