escape from alcatraz - team gp2c
When: June 1, 2014
Where: San Francisco, CA
What: 1.5-mile swim, 18-mile bike race, and 8-mile cross country run
For one weekend each year, 2,000 of the world's best triathletes assemble in San Francisco for one of the most infamous and extreme sporting events…the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. In its 29 years as a maximum-security prison, no one ever escaped alive from the menacing shores of Alcatraz. Every year, this popular event draws over 15,000 spectators to see who can accomplish that daunting task.
Team GP2C is in the process of securing 5 slots for this race to help us raise awareness for Rett Syndrome, a severe neurological disorder that primarily affects girls. Team member Brian Dalton of Michigan is the inspiration behind getting GP2C involved: "This race is symbolic of how the girls are in essence a prisoner in their own bodies. Their minds are free, but their bodies are broken. So, to help out, I'm going to put myself and my body through one of the most challenging races I could find."
