Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon: June 3, 2007

On Sunday, June 3, the Accenture Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon was packed with heart-pounding action featuring a 1.5 mile swim through frigid waters from Alcatraz Island to shore,

a grueling 18-mile bike race...

and a demanding 8-mile run through the rugged trails of Golden Gate Recreation Area. Set against the natural beauty of San Francisco, this thrilling triathlon is a virtual postcard of the City by the Bay......and who was there seeing it ALL the way through, why it was our own Greg Linakis. Congratulations Greg. Great Race and GREAT Pictures.
