“IN TRAINING – Mary Cummins, 10, left, runs along beach in Santa Monica training for annual Swim-Run-Swim at Pacific Beach in San Diego on Sunday, Sept. 19. She will represent the Culver City Swim Club. Running with her are her sister and coach, Juliette, 12 and their dog Charlie. Contest consists of a 1/2-mile swim around the pier, a 3 1/2 mile run on the beach and a return swim around the pier. The ages of those who have entered race range from 9 to 68.”

This was Tug’s Tavern annual swim-run-swim. Even though Tug’s closed in 1985 they have a Facebook page. Tugs Tavern’s owner Tom Warren won the Ironman Triathlon in 1979. His appearance on Johnny Carson and in Sports Illustrated was a big part of the popularity for the sport of Triathlon.
