Nautica Malibu Triathlon routes
Our 2019 course will be one of the most scenic in country! Designed by the co-creator of Mike and Rob’s Most Excellent Triathlon, (for those of you “old school” triathletes out there – for the younger folks – it was SoCal’s only Ironman Qualifier).
Swim parallel to Zuma Beach – Bike on the coastal rolling hills of Malibu and fast flat farmlands of Ventura County, and finish with a fast flat spectator friendly run alongside the Pacific Ocean. Our priority is you the athlete, first and foremost!
