750m SWIM / 5K RUN
Course Description and Maps

Please review the maps before the race. It is each athlete’s responsibility to know the course and any potential hazards.

Swim Course

The swim corral will be located on Cowell Beach in front of the Dream Inn. Swimmers will start in one waves beginning at 9:45 a.m., heading counter - clockwise around the three buoys and exit the water at Cowell Beach. From there, swimmers run through the parking lot, across the street, under the trestle and up a paved path to the transition area to cross a timing mat before starting the run course. Volunteers will guide racers.

The swim start time could be impacted if an extreme fog delay, slows the start of the Olympic swim.

Run Course

The Run Out section from transition is on the path that goes under the train trestle. The turnaround is just past Woodrow Ave. on West Cliff Drive. The run is on the foot path and is not a closed course.

Note: The Swim In and the Run Out both follow the path at the back of the park and go under the train trestle, avoiding the street traffic on Pacific Avenue.
