Top triathletes from around the globe will take over the streets and waters of San Francisco for the 2017 Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. Showcasing 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 starts and ends, as well as where the athlete transition area and finish line are easily visible.
Athletes interested in taking on the challenge can register for the random drawing registration beginning Wednesday, September 14 through Monday, October 17.
