April 9, 2019 - July 2019 Far Westerns Information

2019 Long Course Far Western Championships

Travel & Hotel Information

Meet Location

Soda Aquatic Center
at Campolindo High School
300 Moraga Rd, Moraga, CA  94556

 

Airports

Oakland International (OAK)
Nearest, most convenient
25 miles from the Soda Aquatic Center
 
San Francisco International (SFO)
Biggest, most international flights
35 miles from the Soda Aquatic Center

 

Ground Transportation

The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system offers service to/from both airports,
but it would be very difficult to get between any area hotels and the pool without a rental car.

 

Accommodations

  • The following hotels have agreed to hold blocks of rooms and offer special pricing for Far Western Championship Meet participants.  For those who plan to travel to the area on 7/24/19, please be aware that Wednesday nights are in high demand for these hotels. While they might have rooms available, some hotels were not able to include them in their block pricing, so the rate for that one night may be higher.  

  • The agreements with the hotels stipulate that the group rates may become unavailable once all allocated rooms have been reserved by guests or once the cut-off date is reached – approximately one month prior to the meet.  (See specific dates for each hotel below.)

  • All five hotels are within 7 to 9 miles from the Soda Aquatic Center pool in Moraga, so differences in travel time are minor.
