Hypercat-fish inundate the Catfish Crawl

Chilly, refreshingly beautiful waters welcomed schools of open water swimmers to the first annual East Bay Catfish Crawl at Shadow Cliffs Park in Pleasanton, CA.  The April 25th event was put on by USA Productions, the same outfit responsible for other terrific Northern California multisport events including the Morgan Hill Sprint Triathlon, Folsom Olympic Distance Triathlon and the Silicon Valley International Triathlon.
