Will Records Fall Around The Rock?

Courtesy of Water World Swim, San Francisco Bay, California.

Oliver Kusch and Aubrie Smallwood hold the course records for the 3.6-mile Swim Around The Rock.  Kusch set the men’s record in 1:10:09 in 2011 while Smallwood set the women’s record in 1:24:25 in 2014 in the course that starts at St. Francis, heads around Alcatraz Island, and finishes at Aquatic Park.

Annually organized by Pedro Ordenes of Water World Swim, the water temperature is expected to be under 15°C this coming Saturday when Alex Kostich is going to take a shot at trying to crack Kusch’s record.
