More than 1,000 skeletons, pirates, and zombies – even a few smurfs – swarmed the beach near Balboa Pier Thursday.

But it was no end-of-the-world disaster or scientifically altered virus outbreak that caused this unusual summer beach crowd. It may have looked like a scene from a science fiction movie, but the beach goers were actually Newport Beach Junior Lifeguards participating in the annual “Monster Mile” event.

The young lifeguards, aged between 9 and 15, ran one mile from the pier to 10th Street and then swam back. An alternative, all land-based course was also offered.
