NEW Deferrals:

Due to an influx of deferral requests year after year, we modified our deferment policy in 2018. 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 deferment 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 2020 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, 2020.

You will not be refunded your 2020 entry fee, as this will reserve your slot in 2021. Participants granted a deferment will need to pay an additional deferment fee when confirming their 2021 slot. The fee amount will correspond to the date the request and doctor's note are sent to
