Tri-California Events has launched the 2010 Alcatraz Triathlon to be held in San Francisco, California on Sunday 29 August 2010. The new race will see 1,800 swimmers, bikers and runners christen the inaugural event, which travels the hills and coast of San Francisco.
Terry Davis, President of Tri-California Events, has 30 years experience race directing triathlons including the Escape from Alcatraz for the last 12 years. "We want to provide our triathletes the full Tri-California Events experience, from online registration, to an incredible and safe course, to the latest technology in timing, to a memorable finish experience for all," Davis said.
"Our number one priority is the triathletes; we have a passion for what we do and our industry. After producing some of the largest triathlons in the world, we understand what it takes to provide a level of service that surpasses the expectations of the athletes and spectators and will create memories that will last a lifetime."
In 2010 Tri-California will provide support for its charitable groups, such as the Challenged Athletes Foundation, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team-N-Training, FCA Endurance, and many local youth and service initiatives.
The new Alcatraz Triathlon will become part of the Tri-California Race Series which includes: The AVIA Wildflower Triathlons on 30 April to 2 May, the San Francisco Triathlon at Treasure Island on 9-11 July, the Triathlon at Pacific Grove on 10-12 Sept and Scott Tinley’s Triathlon in San Luis Obispo County on 1-3 October.
