Aquatic Park | 900 Beach St, SF


Delight at watching other people freeze their tail ends off as they take a plunge for a good cause in Aquatic Park for the Dash and Splash, a 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.
