Join us for this incredible opportunity to swim and run along the scenic coast line of Crissy Field, while taking in the beauty of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and all that the San Francisco Bay has to offer. The 2K swim will begin as a beach start near the St. Francis Yacht Club. You will then head towards the Golden Gate Bridge and exit at the beach near the West Bluff picnic area and the Warming Hut. Racers will transition in the picnic area and then start running towards Fort Point and the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge. Once at Fort Point, the runners will loop around and head back through Crissy Field towards the St. Francis Yacht Club and out to the wave organ, where they'll turn around and head back to the finish.
Great Prizes for Overall Male and Female: The top male and female finishers will each receive a free Alcatraz crossing, courtesy of Water World Swim.
The race will begin at the beach next to St. Francis Yacht club at 7am.
There is plenty of parking in the East Beach parking lot in Crissy Field.
There will be one water station at the swim/run transition. The run will also pass this station around the mile 1 mark.
