The Swim

Kicking off the first ever TriFuzion is the inaugural 2.4 or 1.2 mile Tiki Swim.

With the blast of a conch horn, the 2.4 mile Tiki Swim starts at the Oceanside Pier while the 1.2 mile option starts off the beach across from the boat launch. Both swims follow the same course and finish on the launch ramp in the Oceanside Harbor. With 30+ lifeguards, 3 Harbor Patrol boats, PWC’s and support from the Oceanside Outrigger Club, this is the safest open water course in the area. The swim course will also feature on course hydration aid stations.

All athletes will be treated to finish line pancake breakfast, custom Peter Grimm Medals and more.

As part of the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce Oceanside Harbor Days, this is a very family friendly event so plan on staying for the festivities after the swim.

The Course

The inaugural Tiki Swim features the two swim distances for both the half and full distance triathlon.

For both distances, athletes will be check in Sunday morning starting at 5:00 at the base of the Oceanside Pier.  Athletes will be given a personal gear check bag for the gear they would like transferred to the Oceanside Harbor finish

The 2.4 mile swim starts at 7:00 with the blast of a traditional conch horn from the south side of the Oceanside Pier. Athletes will head straight out past the end of the pietr and turn north for the Oceanside Harbor mouth picking up the 1.2 mile swimmers in the process.

The 1.2 mile course starts from the beach across from the boat launch finish area. These athletes  will start at 7:30 with that course merging into the 2.4 mile course.

Both groups of swimmers will enter the protective shelter of the harbor WITH an incoming tide to add a little push. Once inside the Oceanside Harbor, it is a drag race to the finish line where all finishers will be greeted with custom Peter Grimm “Medals”.
