Even if you have watched the movie The Rock it’s really not possible for an inmate to escape Alcatraz but can elite athletes concur the trail.  This is one of the best races in the country.  World champions and amateurs from 40 countries and every state in the US descend on San Francisco every June. To compete you will have a 1.5 mile swim, 8 mile run and and 18 miles on bike. The killer aspect of this race is that SanFran is cold in June caused by article waters that work their way down the pacific.  This is an elite athlete race in order to qualify you need to have entered in the past or win a lottery. Trust me when I say if your going to head to California in June you are better off in a San Diego Day Spa getting some pampering.
