2013 Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon | Marina Green We’ll never know for sure if prisoners escaped from the Rock while it was a federal prison but, on Sunday, at least 2,000 will make their successful escape.

Some of the world’s top athletes will take over the streets and waters of San Francisco to compete in the prestigious Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. You’re invited to watch from the sidelines on the Marina Green.

Best Viewing spot: Free for Spectators - Marina Green is a great place to watch the swim start and swim. Marina Green Beach just west of St. Francis Yacht Club is a great place to watch the swim and swim exit. Marina Green is the best place to watch transition. Marina Blvd is a great place to watch a portion of the bike and run portion of the race. There will be grandstands along both sides of the finish chute to watch participants finish the race.
