Surf’s Up! UCSB Offers Swim, Run Events

University recreation department plans series of Friday "surf and turf" events

Looking for a great way to end the work week with some exercise and fun? The University of California, Santa Barbara, Recreation Department might have the solution.

Starting this Friday, May 8, and for the next four Fridays through June 5, the UCSB Recreation Department is offering Surf & Turf, a fun duathlon event starting at 6 p.m. Adults and children as young as 8 years old are welcome. Registration fee for the entire series is $60 for students and $65 for non-students, or sign up for individual events for $15 each.

The event will feature a 500-meter ocean swim and/or a 5-kilometer ocean view run around the UCSB Lagoon. Participants can sign up for the entire series, or individual events, and are welcome to participate in both the swim and run, or choose between the two. Walkers are also welcome.

There will be entertainment and snacks after each event.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
