Okay, I'm not expecting you to actually participate in the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon (though I'm sure there are a few parents out there who do). But you can take the kids to see the excitement - and for a free Fitness Festival and Expo that weekend too.
You'll see 2,000 triathletes (including those on relay teams) swim 1.5 miles
from Alcatraz to the shore, an 18 mile bike race and an 8 mile run through the Presidio.
The Fitness Festival and Expo takes place on Marina Green, Saturday, June 6 from 11-6.
The race itself starts at 7:30 a.m. on June 7 with the swim portion (the expo runs that day from 6:30-2:30). You'll want to be at Marina Green - it's where the athletes start and end the swim, the staging area for the other portions, and the finish line.
