For one weekend each summer, 2,000 of the world’s best triathletes assemble in San Francisco for one of the most infamous and extreme sporting event — 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. Every year, this popular event draws over 20,000 spectators to see who can accomplish that daunting task.

Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon is packed with heart-pounding action featuring a 1.5 mile swim through frigid 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.

For 8 years TeamCindy partnered with Kevin Brennan to host a team of amazing athletes who trained and conquered this famed triathlon. This event supported a Chair of Research that helped fund critical research in the early detection, prevention, and treatment of brain aneurysms.

While we may no longer have a formal team for Escape from Alcatraz, please reach out to us if you are interested in representing TeamCindy and the BAF at this or any other event. We’d love to support you!
