Do you run? Do you swim? Do you cycle?
Have you ever thought about combining your love for any of these sports with the agility and strength that comes from the other two? Well, the Masters Sports program is the place to do it!
Started by the Masters Sports Director, Ron ‘Sickie’ Marcikic, in 1983, this program offers an array of running, swimming and cycling workouts available for any fitness level. Anyone, from a freshman on his or her first day of college to a seasoned athlete of 40 years, can join in, swimming with Coach Sickie, running with Coach Terry Martin or the combined Triathlon program, and increase their abilities with great coaching and highly experienced staff.
For almost 33 years, the UCSD Masters Swimming Program, under the tutelage of Masters Sports Director and Head Coach, Ron ‘Sickie’ Marcikic, has offered quality swim workouts to students, staff, faculty and the surrounding community. Utilizing two 50 meter pools at the Canyonview Aquatic Center, a coaching staff of 13 coaches, with workouts offered 7 days a week, Masters Swimming provides a very affordable, very fun and comprehensive lifetime fitness program for adult athletes.

Grab your shoes and come out to the North Campus Track for some fun…on the run!
