WHALE

How It Works:

Run from the whale at Long Marine Lab to the entrance of Seabright Beach just past the Natural History Museum whale via the route below. It's 6 miles. Look out for cars and stoners. The entrance to Long Marine Lab will probably be closed so give yourself time to park on Delaware Ave. and jog into the start.

History:

The Whale to Whale was created by Adam Boothe and Martin Spierings in 2010 who were annoyed by the local races and their crappy prizes and finisher medals so this rogue event was created. It was held several times between 2010-2015 by the now defunct Santa Cruz Endurance team. It seemed like a good idea to bring it back in a year when many races have been canceled. Results of the 3rd race in 2011 are here. I can't find any others. Send me your historical archives if you have them and I can update this bit.
