Male and Female Champions of GCBSs (1982-2017)

There are 244 swimmers (3.4% of all finishers) who completed 10 or more GCBSs.  Upon the 10th completion, 15th completion, 20th completion, 25th completion or 30th completion, swimmers receive special "longevity" awards from the Bay Swim Director to commemorate their endurance and commitment to the event.  Information about these awards is available here.
