Bob Placak announced the 16th Annual RCP Tiburon Mile, a 1 nautical mile swim from Angel Island to downtown Tiburon in San Francisco Bay on September 11th.

This open water swim will feature Olympic gold, silver and bronze medalists arriving directly from the 2016 Rio Olympic Games as well as world champions in what is considered the most competitive open water swim in the world right here in our backyard. Over 15 countries will be represented this year.

These athletes will swim along with the local swimmers – ages 9 years and up – from around the Bay Area and throughout California, including teams from North Bay Aquatics, Orinda Aquatics and Cal Berkeley.

The event is a benefit for Pulmonary Hypertension Association and Special Olympics.

Registration for this swim (at www.rcptiburonmile.com) is limited this year, so we are encouraging athletes to sign up early
