Placak, a Marin County native and Tiburon resident, the RCP Tiburon Mile has quickly become known as the most competitive and prestigious open water swim event in the world. Every year, hundreds of swimmers converge upon the Town of Tiburon, California and battle the waters of The Raccoon Strait.

This premier international open water swim will include many Olympic and world Champions including the top three finishers from last year in both male and female divisions, as well as swimmers from Russia, Australia, and Germany and Hawaii.
