La Jolla Cove 10 Mile Relay & Solo Swim is a relay and solo marathon swim held in October in La Jolla Cove in La Jolla, California just north of San Diego. Hosted by the La Jolla Cove Swim Club, it is one of America's Top 100 Open Water Swims.



The race course is a triangular 1 mile lap around marked turn buoys.

Relay Rules

Teams of up to 5 swimmers will swim a total of 10 miles, presumably 2 miles each. Teams with fewer than 5 swimmers must also complete the full 10 miles. Swimmers must swim at least 1 mile before being relieved by the next swimmer at the water's edge. Any swimmer may swim 2 or more miles for their team. Teams may divide up the laps and the order of the swim any way they wish. Two swimmers from the same team cannot swim at the same time and count that as multiple laps. The relay exchange between team members is via a hand-slap (or high five).

Timekeepers will record lap times for each swimmer and team.


Swimmers may wear wetsuits, fins, masks, and snorkels, but will only be considered for the combined age category team awards and not eligible for Top Male, Top Female, or Solo Team category awards.
