Triathletes prepare to Escape from Alcatraz

Next year's race dates confirmed for June 2014; registration opens this September

The 34th annual Escape from Alcatraz event will take place on 1 June 2014, giving triathletes the chance to try their hand at breaking out from the notorious prison, located off the coast of San Francisco.

Registration for the event will open on 1 September of this year, with organisers IMG Worldwide closing the entries lottery on 26 October. The first drawing will take place on 29 September, and the second on 27 October.

Over 2,000 race participants will start with a 2.4km swim from Alcatraz Island to the shoreline of Marina Green, followed by a 28.9km hilly bike ride through the Presidio and a 12.8km trail run through Baker Beach to the infamous Sand Ladder.
