This Alcatraz crossing is great for swimmers that have crossed many times from Alcatraz to San Francisco, or for the experienced open water swimmer wanting to race Alcatraz in style for the first time! The St. Francis route, despite being 1.8-2.1mi, is faster than Aquatic Park due to sweeping currents in your favor, giving all swimmers a speedy boost.

This swim is a favorite among the fastest Alcatraz veterans, as well as the first timer who wants to test their swimming endurance in a competitive setting. Medals will be given to all participants with trophies for top racers. Be in it to win it!
