“After hundreds of emails asking us to reopen our San Francisco Triathlon at Alcatraz we couldn’t deny that there is a place and need for the race we launched in 2010, but had to put on hold for the American’s Cup,” said Terry Davis, CEO of Tri-California.

The event will be part of an annual triathlon calendar that includes Wildflower, Pacific Grove, and Tinley’s.

The San Francisco Triathlon at Alcatraz begins with a boat jump and 1.5-mile swim from Alcatraz Island, a 20-mile bike leg, and a 7-mile run.

Registration will open Friday, 13 November.
