50 SWIMMERS · 6.2 MI (10KM) FROM THE GOLDEN GATE TO THE BAY BRIDGE

This 10K (approx. 6.2 mi) race begins at the south tower of the Golden Gate Bridge and finishes at the Bay Bridge. This legendary swim is recommended for elite swimmers wanting to race between two landmark bridges in the exciting bay waters! With stunning views of all San Francisco's great landmarks - the bridges, the Presidio, Palace of Fine Arts, Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, the Embarcadero - this is a swimming tour of a race if there ever was one. You won't want to miss out on this San Francisco bay adventure! This swim is with the current and also great practice for longer endurance swims such as Manhattan Island and the English Channel.

Swimmers will list their experience when they register and this information will be heavily considered. Feel free to submit your pool or open water mile times, or previous race results and experience, for consideration before registering by contacting us.

NOTE ON SWIMMERS UNDER 18

Safety is our priority in challenging waters! Participants must be at least 12 years old to participate by signing up online. No children under 7 are accepted. Children under 12 must be evaluated by a Water World Swim coach in a private session for a non-refundable $95 fee and must be registered at time of evaluation. The fee also covers an accompanying coach in the water during the swim. Registration will be refunded if the minor is deemed not suitable to participate.

If the under 12 minor is coming from out of town and is unable to be assessed by Water World Swim, we require a certified coach to evaluate the minor and contact us via email or written documentation certifying their ability and recommending their participation. Out of town minors under 12 must pay an additional $95 to have an accompanying coach in the water.
