Top World Triathlons: Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon

Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon


San Francisco, USA
Next event: 12 June 2016
Distances 1.5mile swim, 18mile bike, 8mile run

Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon is one of the most beautiful triathlons. It starts with the ferry, when the San Francisco Belle takes its victims to the start next to Alcatraz Island. With strong currents and 12° waters, this is a cold beginning of an exhausting race.

However, you’ll soon be feeling hot as a hilly bike will warm your blood and this will get even to the boiling point when the run comes. Sandy seashore offers the draining platform as you struggle with the dreaded Sand Ladder – a 400-step ascent to the cliff.
