On Sunday, nearly 2,000 amateur and professional athletes took the plunge into the 61.2-degree water of San Francisco Bay to compete in the 36th Annual Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. First-time Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon competitors, Rio-bound USA Triathlon Team member Joe Maloy and Great Britain’s Holly Lawrence, took first place honors in the men and women’s pro division. Featuring a 1.5-mile swim from Alcatraz Island to the shore, an 18-mile bike ride and an eight-mile run through San Francisco, this race is considered one of the most difficult – iconic – triathlons in the world.
