    What we're about

    Public Group

    Take The Rock Veterans Swim Challenge is a combined swim training and swim event aimed at people who have served in any branch of the U.S. military and their family members. (No Experience Necessary!) The organizers are veterans and our goal is to help you prepare and successfully swim from Alcatraz Island to the beach in San Francisco, a distance of approximately 1.3 miles. We swim Alcatraz on Sunday, September 16th, 2018.

    We have had five annual Alcatraz swims to date, with the most recent one happening in October 2017 and 75 swimmers. We especially welcome and support disabled veterans.

    In order to join this group you must fill out the questionnaire and use a photo of yourself in your human form, and your real first and last name - no aliases, please!
