It’s that time of year again when multitudes of spectators will be cheering on the hundreds of swimmers participating in the 17th RCP Tiburon Mile Open Water Swim!  This year’s race is set for SUNDAY, AUGUST 19TH at 9:00 A.M., and is a benefit for the Lifehouse Agency in San Rafael, CA.

If you’re interested in swimming with us, you can register in any 1 of the 4 Divisions of eligibility, AND save almost $50 if your registration is completed by August 4.  Awards are presented to top finishers in each division and a $2500 cash prize is awarded to the first-place overall male and female finishers!  Any swimmer that individually raises more than $1000 for our charity (The Lifehouse Agency) will have their entry fee refunded after verification and collection of the donations are received.  So, what are you waiting for? Dive in!

If you’d rather show your support through volunteering, there are plenty of fun and free ways to get involved!  All you have to do is visit our website and sign up for the position of your choice! We’ve got openings for t-shirt sales, food purveyors, baggage claim clerks, registration handlers, volunteer check-in, and more. If you like to be on the water, we’re especially looking for more volunteers with motorized boats and/or kayaking equipment and experience.  So grab your partner or gather your friends and join this one-of-a-kind event where you can volunteer year after year, and never do the same thing twice!  Plus, volunteers get a hip red hoodie and a free gourmet lunch after the race (while they last)!  So, you wanna make a splash? Jump in and volunteer!

Oh, and did we mention that there will be some pretty “big fish” in the race too?  No, we’re not talking about sharks — we’ve got an amazing line up of World Champion swimmers and Olympic Medalists from around the globe!  Here’s your chance to rub elbows (or should we say fins) with world class athletes like 2016 Olympic Open Water Gold Medalist, Ferry Weertman, and 500 & 1650 Freestyle American record holder, Zane Grothe!

Thank you so much for your continued support of the RCP Tiburon Mile Open Water Swim! Hope to see you all on race day — only one month to GO!
