Escape From Alcatraz

What a rush! This race is a must do, at least once in your lifetime...and then you'll be hooked and want to come back year after year. This is such a unique race because you first have the chance to "Escape From Alcatraz" by swimming across the channel to San Francisco. Despite the water being a chilly 56 degrees F, there is also a strong cross current, swells, and chop. With nearly 2000 people on board the San Francisco Belle the boat horn sounds and the starboard galley doors are opened. The racers then proceed to jump into the icy water, emptying the boat in just 6 minutes. It's literally like lemmings jumping off a cliff. There is no time to hesitate. You just go.
So after all of that exhileration, the race then leads to a 1K run to T1 where you begin the 18 mile hilly bike leg passed the Golden Gate Bridge and through the Presidio. Following the bike, back into transition you quickly start the 8 mile run. The run is Xterra-like quickly moving from pavement to trail, up steps, down steps, through a tunnel that's only 5 feet high, down steep trails to Baker Beach, on the sand next to the ocean, up the "Sand Ladder", and backtracking all the way to the finish. I will say this is one of the most energetic, well organized events I have ever competed in. Now it's your turn. The lottery opens this November!

Boise IRONMAN 70.3

Aside from the freezing cold lake (58F), this race was money!!! Downtown Boise was a happening place last weekend. There was "Ironman" everywhere you looked. It seemed like the entire town came out to cheer on the race. It was definitely loud and energetic at the transitions and finish line. This is a great race to put on the calendar for next season.Here are the club members results:

Tyler Hendrickson 5:14:08"
Craig Ward 5:38:00"
CJ Park 5:57:00"
Dave Ward 6:14:12"
Ryan Benson 6:19:11"

Saint George Triathlon

As always this race finds a new way to get tougher every year. With swells and whitecaps big enough for Search and Rescue to cancel the swim portion of the Sprint Race, the Olympic distance athletes were left to gut it out. As the strong winds continued to blow, the bike portion was much more difficult than many people expected. However, with the cooler temps, the run was pretty enjoyable for those who weren't completely exhausted by this point. Make sure you register early again next year!!! Here are club member results:

Olympic Distance

Craig Ward 2:39:47
Tyler Hendrickson 2:42:55
CJ Park 3:08:08
Dave Ward 3:16:45

Sprint Distance

Jeremy Holmgren 1:06:59
Spencer Rice 1:06:59 (no that's not a typo, they actually came in together)
Kevin Packer 1:12:13
Ryan Benson 1:12:15 (missed him by 2 seconds!)
