Andy Potts out of the water in his Tyr Freak of Nature.

Escape from Alcatraz is a race that is on all of triathletes bucket list. Entry is through a lottery system and only 2000 athletes are granted the opportunity to have a lifetime of bragging rights to have said they Escaped from Alcatraz. The race consist of a 1.5 mile swim through the cold, strong, and rough waters of the SF bay. Then off to an 18 mile SF hilly bike ride with a 8 mile run that is part trails, hills, beach, sand, and 400 steps of an exhausting sand ladder. The weather was perfect as can be in the early June race. Andy Potts taking 1st overall making it his 5th win at Escape making it the most wins here for mens. Leanda Cave on the other hand dominated as well taking the women’s title.
