Challenge Yourself in 2021

The Recreation and Special Events Department invites swimmers to test their mettle by joining the 2021 Lap Challenge to discover whether they can swim the distance from Florida to Cuba.

The total distance, 103 miles, is cumulative over the course of the year. Chart your distance in lengths or laps, using the same measurement each swim session (3,605 laps/7,210 lengths; 35 laps/70 lengths are equal to 1 mile), and check in with the pool attendant each session to log your progress. 

The challenge is open to all residents, runs January 1 though December 31, 2021, and can be done at lap pools 2 and 5 only. 

Call Recreation at 949-597-4273 for more information. 

Because the COVID-19 pandemic brought the 2020 Lap Challenge to a premature end, Recreation staff wishes to mention those swimmers who participated: Daniel Riter, Don McIntosh, Manfred Koppitsch and Ken Schrieber.
