Get Involved


Thank you so much for your early interest in volunteering for the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. For the first time, The Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon is now hiring and paying individuals for the roles that were formerly for volunteers! We are excited to offer this opportunity to interested individuals and especially to former volunteers. Come back and be a part of the action again!

The jobs and roles are staying the same… the environment will still be electric… we will still have a phenomenal event with phenomenal people… but now you are a Course Assistant instead of a Volunteer!

 Considerations for these roles:

  • These are very active roles taking place outside on June 2nd and 3rd at varying hours of the day.
  • We are only able to accept individuals who are 18+ years of age unless they have a permit to work from the State of California.
  • You must be legally allowed to work within the State of California.
  • You must have a positive attitude!

We are very excited to be able to bring on a dynamic workforce which shares the same values and goals we do. We want to make sure we support the athletes every step of the way to ensure their success and achievement. On June 2nd and 3rd, San Francisco will once again be the site of the most sought after triathlon in the world… the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. With 2000 athletes competing, registration on Saturday, and the race taking place on Sunday, we will have extensive opportunities in a variety of roles! From aid stations, to timing assistants, to course marshals and more, we want to have you as part of the team!


In addition to an awesome viewpoint of this iconic event and pay, the workforce package includes increased odds of being drawn for the 2019 Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon as a participant. We want to see you year after year!


To register now please go to The Escape From Alcatraz Volunteer Database

On this database, it still says “volunteer” in areas. Please pay it no mind. The role or the job title is exactly the same!

If you were a volunteer leader in the past, please title your email “Former Volunteer Leader” if you are interested in taking the role on again. We would love to have you.


We look forward to working with you!
