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 two waves beginning at 9:30 a.m., heading counter-clockwise around the three buoys and exit the water at Cowell Beach. From there, swimmers run up the path aside the Dream Inn, through the parking lot, across the street and up a paved path under the trestle, 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.

Run Course

The Run Out section from transition is on the path that goes under the train trestle. The turnaround at Woodrow Avenue 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. The Bike In and Out still go on the road overpass, above the train tracks.


The new transition area will be on the soccer fields at Depot Park. There is a zero-tolerance policy for eating and drinking while inside the fenced area on the turfed grass. Athletes are allowed to bring in nutrition but cannot eat or drink inside on the fields. If we see you eating or drinking on the fields, you will be disqualified. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Transition opens for the Sprint Triathlon at 8 a.m. and closes at 9:00 a.m. Athletes must be body-marked and have their numbered bracelet to enter and exit the Transition area. Athletes only. Transition closes promptly at 1pm. Maps of the new transition area to be posted soon! 

Any course changes and details will be covered in the mandatory pre-race meeting on Cowell Beach at 9:15 am.
