Alcatraz Swims: May 5, July 14 & September 29, 2018
Come join us for the ultimate Bay Area open water swim! This event is not a race, just a friendly swim in an exciting, safe, and comfortable environment. It is a great opportunity for those training for similar events, including the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon, or people who just want an unforgettable, world famous swimming experience! We are happy to offer three Alcatraz swims in 2018, and we're always available to schedule private solo or group swims, as well. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or want to schedule your own Alcatraz swim.
- Approximately 2 mile swim from Alcatraz Island to the St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco. This swim is for relatively strong swimmers. You should be able to do this distance in a pool (140 lengths of a 25 yard pool) or during our regular group open water swims in Berkeley without stopping. Feel free to contact us if you're not sure if you are up for it.
- Only $135 per event or $385 if you register for all three together! There is a $50 late registration fee within one month of the event.
- In addition to the swim itself, registration includes an event t-shirt and a yellow silicone Odyssey swim cap.
- All Alcatraz swims will take place in the morning, usually meeting in SF between 5 and 8am. The registration page shows an approximate check-in time, but swimmers will receive an email prior to the event with finalized details.
