Open Water Swim from Alcatraz
Every swimmer dreams of making the ultimate "ESCAPE" from the
historical island prison located in the middle of the San Francisco Bay!
This is the swim the Anglin Brothers and Frank Lee Morris successfully
attempted in their escape from Alcatraz on the night of June 12, 1962.
Who knows where they are now? Who cares?!! Now it's YOUR turn! The event
is limited to 800 participants and sells out months in advance every
year and DID again this year!
PLEASE NOTE: This
swim is not for novices. This event is for experienced open-water
swimmers only. You should be able to swim one mile comfortably in a pool
in under 40 minutes.
The Alcatraz Sharkfest Swim on August 8 is now SOLD OUT! But you can still swim the same course from Alcatraz as part of our Alcatraz XXXV Escape from the Rock
event on August 22.
