Lead by Spencer Pirdy, The Ben Did Go 3.0 is a 26 mile open ocean paddle that will take place from Catalina to Newport Beach. The paddle portion of this day is an invite only to participate, followed by an all welcoming community Run Swim Run. We invite everyone in the community to join us this final stretch and we especially encourage all JG's and parents to participate in this epic athletic adventure!
The paddle for nearly 30 athletes will begin at 4:00am, with an estimated arrival at about 4:00 pm at the Newport Pier. Once the last athlete arrives in Newport, we will rest for 30 minutes and then set out on the Run-Swim-Run. Following the RSR we will all gather together at the Ben Carlson Statue for a celebration and words of gratitude.
Celebratory refreshments to follow at Malarky's. - Cheers!
On July 6th, of every year, the City of Newport Beach honors Ben's legacy. This is most illustrated in the lifeguard community from City Officials to a sea of kids at the NBJG's who wear their Ben Carlson apparel to remember the community's hero!
Considering that the NBJG's do not attend on Friday's, and considering that this years' July 6th lands on a Friday, Ben Carlson Day will be celebrated on Thursday, July 5th.
Wednesday, May 2, at 7.30pm at The Lot (Fashion Island)
The Newport Beach Film Festival and the Ben Carlson Foundation are proud to present the Kim Swims Film.
