Alpine Dam set up shop at the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. It was fun meeting people people from all over the world, whether participants or friends and family member attending to cheer loved ones on.
Having watched the race a for number of years the weather was odd to say the least with big winds and the USCG having to cancel to the swim race on race day for safety.
When the buses came back from the pier with neoprene clad athletes you sense the energy has they geared and their focus changed to the quickly amended new Duathlon.
Of course the USCG made the right call for safety, IMG was classy is providing for first for spot in 2018 for the athletes and it was impressive to watch the team shift to a Duathlon, adjusting the start, timing and making the "new" race fun.
Clearly San Francisco is home to one of the most amazing triathlons, if you're ever interested in participating you can learn more here.
