NEW Deferrals:

Due to an influx of deferral requests year after year, we have modified our deferment policy. Our ability to deliver an incredible event requires having an accurate count of confirmed participants, as well as, giving sufficient notice to those on the wait list as deferments are confirmed.   

See below for our new parameters. We encourage you to take a detailed look at your calendar before registering to minimize the risk of a scheduling conflict. We understand accidents, injuries, and other unexpected events happen every day. Life is unpredictable, but fair warnings are appreciated, to help us continue to accommodate the rest of the field. Please read and understand the new deferral policy BEFORE you commit to racing in the 2019 Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon.   

NEW Deferrals:
 Participants competing as individuals (does not apply to relay teams*) may defer to the following year for medical emergency and military order reasons only. Proof of medical injury or condition that prohibits you from competing via a doctor's note must be emailed to no later than May 25, 2019.   

You will not be refunded your 2019 entry fee, as this will reserve your slot in 2020. Participants granted a deferment will need to pay an additional deferment fee when confirming their 2020 slot in September 2019. The fee amount will correspond to the date the request and doctor's note are sent to   

Deferment Fee Schedule 
 •             Request sent on or before April 28, 2019: $250 
 •             Request sent between April 29, 2018 - May 25, 2019: $375   

There will be no deferrals for 2019 participants granted after May 25, 2019. No exceptions.  

*There are no refunds or deferrals for relay teams or team members. Relay team members must find a replacement.
