I escaped! – 2013 Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon –

The 30th annual Escape from Alcatraz triathlon took place on March 3, 2013 in beautiful San Francisco. This multisport adventure is one of the world’s most beautiful and most famous swim-bike-run events. Each year Hypercat Racing and coach Rachel Casanta helps guide athletes from all over the world in the preparations for this event. Her “Alcatraz triathlon” training plans are used by first time Alcatraz participants and podium finishers alike with great success. Below is a note from one of this year’s Hypercat Racing Alcatraz triathlon program participants.


I wanted to thank you for the plan you provided us to prepare for the Alcatraz race.  Despite arthroscopic knee surgery in November, a hip flexor injury in January and a bad case of respiratory flu in February, I made it through the race under my goal time of 3 hours.  I credit the plan you put together for much of what I consider to be a very successful race.  Thank you…and best of luck with the remainder of the 2013 season!
