Long Distance Course
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!

Olympic Distance Course
The Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Bank of America Merrill Olympic Distance race course features a 1.5K Pacific Ocean swim, a 40K out-and-back bike course along the Pacific Coast Highway, and a 10K out-and-back run course on pavement and blacktop along the sands of Zuma Beach. The course goes through some of the most beautiful roads in Malibu, with spectacular views of the mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The race will take place on Saturday, September 14th, 2019.

Classic Distance Course
The Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Bank of America Classic Distance course on Sunday, September 15th, 2019 features a half-mile ocean swim, a 17 mile out-and-back bike course, and a 4-mile out-and-back run course. The course goes through some of the most beautiful roads in Malibu, with spectacular views of the mountains and the Pacific Ocean.

Aquabike Course
The Aquabike category is a combination of swimming and biking. This new category in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon brings together a variety of different racers. The Aquabike event is for athletes who cannot run long distance anymore or are recovering from an injury, strong swimmers/cyclists, or anyone who love’s the multi-sport lifestyle, and prefers not to run. The Aquabike category will consist of a 1.5K Pacific Ocean Swim and a 40K out-and-back bike along the Pacific Coast Highway.
