Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon (POSTPONED- 2021 DATE TBD)

Jun 7, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

[This event has been postponed until 2021. Official date TBD.]

The 40th annual Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon will take place on Sunday, June 7, 2020, in San Francisco.

From Olympians and world champions to enthusiastic age groupers and challenged athletes, triathletes from all over the world will take over the streets and waters of San Francisco for the 40th anniversary celebration of the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. The infamous history of the island as an inescapable federal prison illuminates a mysterious challenge to athletes worldwide, the chance to “Escape from Alcatraz.”

Exploring the beauty of San Francisco, triathletes will embark on a grueling 1.5-mile swim from Alcatraz Island to the shoreline of Marina Green, an 18-mile twisting bike ride through the Presidio, and an eight-mile trail run out to Baker Beach and up the infamous 400-plus-step Sand Ladder. Fans can experience the excitement at the Marina Green, where the swim ends, and the athlete transition area and finish line are easily visible.
