I added one more event to the 2007 race calendar — the Alcatraz 100 Swim of the Centurions on September 2. Come join me! It’s a 1.25 mile open water swim from Alcatraz Island to Aquatic Park in San Francisco. There are two divisions, wetsuit and non-wetsuit (aka – “the purists”/true crazies — I’ll be wearing a wetsuit). The first 50 swimmers in each division are honored on a plaque on permanent display on Alcatraz Island so bring your swimming arms. Friends and family can watch you close up ($20 includes boat ride and snacks).
The event is limited to 450 participants and sells out quickly, so if you are interested definitely signup ASAP. There is a discount for teams of 5 or more, so if you care to join me please say that you are part of team “Trifiniti”. If you wish to practice swimming in the bay before then, both GGTC and Water World Swim host weekly Aquatic Park swims.
