Earn $100 at an awesome paddling event on the San Francisco Bay

We need lots of paddlers to dust off their kayaks and SUPs and help us support the swimmers at the infamous Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon in August. And if you don't have a kayak, we'll even provide one to you for free to use at the event.

The swim takes place on 8/15/21. Triathletes will race from the eastern end of Alcatraz Island to St. Francis Beach next to Crissy Field. Paddlers will help guide the swimmers along the route and alert safety staff of swimmers who need assistance.

All paddlers are welcome (kayak, SUP, etc-non-motorized) and they will be paid $100 for their participation. For those who don't have their own gear, we will provide sit-on-top kayaks and safety equipment. This is a very well-supported swim, with motorized boats and emergency personnel on hand to help out.

For more information and to sign-up, visit the event page below. (Note, you will need to select a ticket quantity of 1 to submit the registration, but is $0 because WE are paying YOU!)

If you have any questions, please let me know. This is an awesome experience! I hope you will join us, and maybe even bring a friend. Thank you!

Patrick Rogers,
