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.
The swim corral will be located on Cowell Beach in front of the Dream Inn. Swimmers will start in two waves beginning at 9:35 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. Volunteers will guide racers.
The swim start time could be impacted if an extreme fog delay, slows the start of the Olympic swim.
The Run Out section from transition is on the path that goes under the train trestle. The turnaround at David Way on West Cliff Drive.
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.
Sprint Aquathlon athletes will enter the transition area through the gate on Center Street. Transition opens for the Sprint Triathlon at 8 a.m. and closes at 9:00 a.m. Athletes must be body-marked to enter and exit the Transition area.
Any course changes and details will be covered in the mandatory pre-race meeting on Cowell Beach at 9:15 am.
