Welcome to the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. The world's top athletes from around the globe take over the streets and waters of San Francisco for this prestigious triathlon. Showcasing the beauty of San Francisco, triathletes embark on a 1.5 mile swim from Alcatraz Island to the San Francisco shoreline, an 18 mile hilly bike ride out to Golden Gate Park and an eight-mile trail run out to Baker Beach and up the infamous Sand Ladder. This world renowned triathlon, in which only 2,000 triathletes can participate, sells out within hours of the registration opening each year.
