Coming Up: Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon

Okay, I'm not expecting you to actually particpate 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 & Expo that weekend too.

You'll see 2,000 triatheletes swim 1.5 miles from Alcatraz to the shore, an 18 mile bike race and an 8 mile run through the Golden Gate Recreation Area.

The Fitness Festival & Expo takes place on Marina Green, Saturday, June 9 starting at 11.

The race itself starts at 7:30 a.m. on June 10 with the swim portion. 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.

This is the triathlon's 32nd anniversary.
