**This event will not be held in 2019 due to low registration numbers**

The Olympic distance Surf City Escape Triathlon will begin with a challenging 1-mile swim in the Pacific Ocean, entering through the same beach break as the world renowned U.S. Open of Surfing. Triathletes will swim along the shoreline with the backdrop of the world famous Huntington Beach Pier. A 12-mile, double-loop bike course will then take athletes along the breathtaking Pacific Coast Highway. Showcasing the Pacific Ocean coastline the entire ride, the entire course is flat and fast. Coveted road closures along Pacific Coast Highway will allow athletes plenty of room for a safe fast ride and for spectators to capture all the action. The final 6.2-mile run will turn up the challenge as it takes athletes on to the pristine beach for a deep sand run then back to the spectator-friendly beachfront start/transition/finish.

The 2018 race will close out the 2017-2018 Escape Series Qualifying process with valuable slots being awarded to the top three finishers in each age group to the 2018 Escape from Alcatraz in San Francisco. Top age group finishers will receive a FREE slot into this prestigious race. Chosen by many as the most iconic triathlon in the world today, the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon is the ultimate bucket list event for any endurance athlete.
