This year, 2,000 participants will embark on a 2.4km open-water swim from the infamous penitentiary of Alcatraz Island to the shoreline of Marina Green followed by a 29km hilly bike ride through the Presidio, finishing with a 12.8km trail run out to Baker Beach and up the infamous Sand Ladder.

“This race is near and dear to my heart and I am really excited to return and compete this year,” said USAT Hall of Famer and 1989 Escape from Alcatraz Champion Scott Tinley. “The 35-year history of this gritty, fun course is fascinating. I remember when it originally included a bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge to Mill Valley and a Double Dipsea trail run. It was amazing then and still is today.”
