2018 Dash and Splash: Feel the Thrill of the Chill | SF

Saturday, March 3, 2018 - 12:00 pm | Cost: FREE*
*Free to watch. Must raise a minimum of $125 to participate.

Aquatic Park | 900 Beach St, SF



Delight at watching other people freeze their tail ends off by taking a plunge in the park for a good cause in Aquatic Park San Francisco City; it’s time for the Dash and Splash to benefit the Special Olympics of Northern California.

Unlike the Escape From Alcatraz triathlon, these nearly 1,000 brave souls won’t be swimming, just braving it—some in wacky costumes—for a quick, but agonizing dip in the chilly waters of the SF Bay.

Those who are too chicken for a plunge are typically sent to the “Chicken Coop,” so be sure to wash them with ridicule… and donate a buck to their cause while you’re at it.
