Alcatraz Challenge Aquathlon/Swim
Are you looking for a truly unique Northern California experience? Or perhaps you’re one of those people who – even during vacation – has trouble sitting still. Have you heard about the Alcatraz Challenge Aquathlon/Swim?
On August 16th of 2015, join other athletes for this nationally renowned event! Enjoy an invigorating 1.5 mile swim and a seven mile run! What athlete doesn’t want to run across the Golden Gate Bridge? Perhaps even more exciting, the swim begins on Alcatraz Island. Participants enjoy a boat ride to the start of the race.
Escape “The Rock”
The worst of the worst were once housed at the Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary. Prisoners who caused too much of a ruckus at other federal prisons were brought to Alcatraz Island: examples include Rafael Cancel Miranda, Alvin Karpis, George Kelly, Robert Franklin Stroud, and even the infamous Al Capone spent time on “The Rock.” Today the prison serves as a public museum, but, by all means, you can most certainly pretend to be swimming for your life if it helps you swim your best. Just remember, legend says that no one ever made it out of the Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary…at least not alive.
Upon completing this challenge, all racers will receive a medal. Custom designed awards will also be issued to winners and the runners-up.
Race Day Transportation
Like any popular Bay Area event, parking can be atrocious. Even though you’ll have fun – you’ll also be working hard! So, sit back and relax in one of our luxury limousines after the race. You’ll have earned it.
Or, if limos aren’t your style, you might consider one of our top-notch sedans, vintage-inspired motorized cable cars, black car services, or more. We also offer immaculately clean coaches and party buses for larger groups. Consider making your escape from prison a team effort and invite your friends! Or, perhaps take a trip back in time and pretend to be the Birdman of Alcatraz – getaway in one of our vintage automobiles!
