2013 Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon

March 3, 2013

For one weekend, 2,000 of the world's best triathletes assemble in San Francisco for one of the most infamous and extreme sporting events… the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. In its 29 years as a maximum-security prison, no one ever escaped alive from the menacing shores of Alcatraz. Now, every year, this popular event draws more than 20,000 spectators to see who can accomplish that daunting task.

On Sunday, March 3, the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon will be packed with heart-pounding action featuring a 1.5 mile swim through chilly waters from Alcatraz Island to shore, a grueling 18-mile bike race, and a demanding 8-mile run through the rugged trails of Golden Gate Recreation Area. Set against the natural beauty of San Francisco, this thrilling triathlon is a virtual postcard of the City by the Bay.

The MMRF is thrilled to be one of the first few charities to participate in this marquee race, which up until recently has never offered charity bibs. Athletes may compete as individuals or as a relay team of two or three. We have a limited number of entries. Join our team and claim yours!
