Get to know the Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon course at one of two clinics in 2014. Prior to the 34th annual race in June, there will be an Escape Academy clinic for both the first-time participant and race veterans with course previews. By completing the Escape Academy, athletes will qualify and are eligible to enter the 2014 Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon (participants will be responsible for the race entry fee in addition to the clinic fees). Clinics are led by Eric Gilsenan, a 25-year veteran of the race and staff coach of the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon.
