TransBay Swim: September 28, 2019

Welcome to the premier San Francisco Bay long distance swim! This swim covers eight miles, from San Francisco to Berkeley. You'll get a spectacular view of our incredible bay, including Alcatraz Island, the Bay Bridge, and Treasure Island, and you'll have support from kayakers and motorized boats throughout the swim. You'll have the current in your favor throughout the event, making the eight miles feel more like four or five. Experienced swimmers only! Swimmers who have not reached Treasure Island after 2.5 hours may need to be repositioned closer to shore.

  • To qualify for this swim, swimmers must attend a Weekly Swim in Berkeley and complete three miles in under 2.5 hours. Out of town swimmers unable to attend a Berkeley Swim may contact us with open water swim experience and times to demonstrate ability.

  • In addition to the swim itself, registration includes an event t-shirt and a yellow silicone Odyssey swim cap.
