See below for our updated 2020 deferment guidelines for the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon & the ESCAPE Aquathlon due to COVID-19.

Participants competing as individuals may defer to 2021 or 2022 for medical emergency, COVID-19 concerns, and military order reasons only. Please email us at to request a deferment for any of these reasons.

Relay Team Members, Corporate Escape Team Members, and Collegiate Team Members seeking a deferment to 2021 or 2022 due to COVID-19 concerns should email for further instruction.

AS PREVIOUSLY REQUIRED/AS STATED IN OUR EXISTING POLICY: For medical emergency, proof of medical injury or condition that prohibits you from competing via a doctor's note must be emailed to no later than May 25, 2020.

Individuals granted a deferment will not be refunded your 2020 entry fee, as this will reserve your slot in the following year.

Individuals granted a deferment to 2021 or 2022 will NOT need to pay an additional deferment fee when confirming their slot in September prior to the year of their choosing.

If the race(s) are canceled in its entirety, we will honor your deferment to the 2021 or 2022 event OR you can elect to receive a refund of your 2020 entry fee (excluding processing & service fees).

If the entire Event is canceled, and you purchased your entry through the Escape from Alcatraz website (or otherwise directly from us), athletes will be given the opportunity to transfer their entry to an event the following year(s) (e.x.2021 or 2022). If that remedy does not work for the athlete, we will issue a refund to the credit card, debit card, or other accepted method of payment that was used to purchase that entry into the Event. IF AN EVENT ENTRY WAS PURCHASED THROUGH ANOTHER METHOD, PLEASE CONTACT THE PERSON OR ENTITY FROM WHOM YOU PURCHASED SUCH ENTRY, AS WE WILL NOT REFUND YOU THEREFOR.

Event entries are sold subject to our absolute right to alter or vary the Event without any obligation to make a refund.

If we issue you a refund for an Event entry due to a canceled or rescheduled Event, we will issue a refund of face value paid for the entry (if any) (or, for a discounted entry, the discounted entry price paid), as applicable. In no event will delivery charges, service fees or any other amounts be refunded. If a refund is issued, where reasonably possible, it will be issued using the same method of payment that was used to purchase the Event entry. We will not be liable for travel or any other expenses that you or anyone else incurs in connection with a canceled or rescheduled event.
