Volunteers are needed to play critical roles supporting the 2000 athletes in this unique, world-class event.


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 events. . .the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon.

On Sunday, June 11th, the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon will be 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.

Volunteers are critical to the success of this unique sporting event. Our volunteers become the event's pit crew, a great vantage point for observing and being a part of this historic and exciting athletic competition. Space for volunteers is limited, so register as a team or individual today!
