On June 1, 2014, triathletes from around the globe descended on San Francisco for one chance to attempt the impossible – ESCAPE from Alcatraz.
Babson was excited to sponsor the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon and the Babson Corporate Challenge for a third year.
The Triathlon includes a 1.5 miles swim, an 18 mile bike ride and an 8 mile run. The Corporate Challenge consists of 3-person teams, with each teammate completing one leg of the triathlon. Babson is looking forward to cheering on its 46 participants, consisting of alumni, current students and staff.
The Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon typically features a 1.5-mile swim through frigid waters from Alcatraz Island to the shores of the St. Francis Yacht Club, a grueling 18-mile bike ride, and a demanding 8-mile run through the trails of the Golden Gate Recreational Area. Set against the natural beauty of San Francisco, this thrilling triathlon is a virtual postcard of the City by the Bay. View the course (pdf) »
