Parking and Shuttle
The TikiSwim is a point to point swim. We use the English Bus Company double decker buses to shuttle athletes and spectators to and from the Pier start area and then from the finish back to their cars.
We will send out an Athlete Letter as the event gets closer with all way too much information, but know the easiest place to par, and it’s FREE, is the Oceanside Transit center. It is a short walk to the pier and it is a primary shuttle stop after the TikiSwim.
Race Timing will be offered by Race Timers using a reusable timing chip attached to your ankle. Live results will be available at the finish line and online. Timing chips must be returned at the finish line.
