Alcatraz Swim with the Centurions
Do you have what it takes to make the escape from one of the world's most iconic prisons?
On June 11, 1962, Frank Morris and John and Clarence Anglin chipped through their cement cell walls, squeezed through a ventilation shaft to get to the roof, climbed down a drain pipe, scaled a 15- foot fence, and entered the frigid waters of San Francisco Bay. They disappeared into the night, wearing only the meager life preservers they made from stolen rain coats, and were never found, seen, or heard from again.
39 years later, on June 11, 2001, race director, Pedro Ordenes swam his 100th successful “Escape from Alcatraz”… and has swum it several hundred times!
Since then, becoming a member of the elite “Alcatraz 100 Club” has become THE ambition for many open water swimmers. On September 10th, you’ll have the chance to reach your own goals and share the waters with the experts of The Bay… the Centurions!
