Escape from Alcatraz at the Cliff House
Escape from Alcatraz
June 11, 2017
Come join us for a for a wonderful Sunday meal and have a chance to cheer on participants that fly by our front doors on the cycling segment of the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon and then climb the same hill on the return to the running segment of the triathlon.
After a icy 1.5 mile swim from Alcatraz fighting currents, the participants will transition on the Marina Green for their 18 mile out and back bike ride climbing up Lincoln Blvd that takes them flying down the hill towards Baker Beach only to face another climb to the Legion of Honor where they encounter an even more dangerous downhill past the VA on their way past the Cliff House and off for a loop through Golden Gate Park before they retrace their steps for their transition to an eight mile run which includes the dreaded Equinox Sand Ladder of 400 steps at Baker Beach.
