On June 12, 2016, triathletes from around the globe will descend on San Francisco for one chance to attempt the impossible – ESCAPE from Alcatraz. The Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon attracts World Champions, Olympic Medalists and the best amateur triathletes from 50 states and over 40 countries. They will put their endurance to the ultimate test as they take on San Francisco’s legendary Bay, steep hills, and rugged terrain. Consistently ranked as a favorite event among Triathletes, this event draws thousands each summer to find out who has what it takes to ESCAPE!
The sport of triathlon dates back to the 1970s with roots in San Diego, California and Honolulu, Hawaii. In these early years, swim, bike and run athletic workouts took place regularly, and grew organically into events in both cities. From there, the sport caught on internationally and in the years to follow, triathlon races started to pop up around the globe. Triathlons were growing in popularity, and by the early 1980s the sport had made its way to San Francisco where two iconic San Francisco Bay Area races (the Alcatraz Swim and the Dipsea Race) were connected with a bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge, creating the start of the Alcatraz Triathlon Challenge evolution.
Since the first race in 1981, the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon has enticed top professional and amateur triathletes to attempt the impossible – ESCAPE from Alcatraz Island. The mystique of Alcatraz Island is part of the attraction that draws more than 2,000 triathletes to San Francisco year after year. The prison was home to more than 1,545 prisoners during its existence as a federal penitentiary from 1934-1963. Famous inmates include Al Capone, George “Machine Gun” Kelly, Henry Young and Robert Stroud “Birdman of Alcatraz.” Perhaps the most famous “Escape from Alcatraz” was that of Frank Lee Morris, who was the brilliant mastermind of one of the most legendary prison escapes in history. Morris and two others escaped from Alcatraz on June 11, 1962, and they were never to be seen again. The mystique of the location and the riskiness of the course, most significantly the challenging open water swim in sub average water conditions, continue to draw competitors wanting to achieve bragging rights.
The 2016 Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon features a 1.5-mile swim from Alcatraz Island to the shores of the St. Francis Yacht Club, a grueling 18-mile bike ride, and a demanding 8-mile run through the trails of the Golden Gate Recreational Area. Set against the natural beauty of San Francisco, this thrilling triathlon is a virtual postcard of the City by the Bay.
Several similar races have come and gone since the early 1980s, but in its 35th year, the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon continues to grow and remain a bucket list race for triathletes from around the world. From Olympian Barb Linquist, Simon Lessing and six-time winner Andy Potts, to Ironman Champions Mirinda Carfrae, Chris McCormack and Michellie Jones, the world’s top triathletes have competed in this legendary race.
