Three Bermuda triathletes completed the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon although, much to the frustration of many participants, the 0.8 mile swim was cancelled at the last minute due to adverse weather conditions that prevented the safety boats from launching.
Joel Matthews (M35-39 – 34th) – Finish: 2:06:34, Bike: 1:00:16, Sand Ladder: 2:30, Run: 1:04:49
Duncan Scott (M50-54 – 95th) – Finish: 2:28:35, Bike: 1:09:17, Sand Ladder: 3:54, Run: 1:17:27
Ben Lau (M45-49 – 40th) – Finish: 2:17:33, Bike: 1:03:21, Sand Ladder: 4:03, Run: 1:12:33
Competitors are taken by ferry just off Alcatraz Island for the swim to the San Francisco shoreline and were already on the ferry when the swim was cancelled.
The Sand Ladder is a 400 step climb from the beach towards the end of the 13km cross country / beach run run portion and is timed separately. The bike, that incorporates the Golden Gate Bridge, is 18 miles.
Duncan Scott was competing for the second year in a row.
