About This Activity

******** JUNE 7TH 2014 MAKE-UP DATE****************

Tri the Beach Triathlon Series is pleased to present the second annual Huntington Beach Triathlon, the "Angry Ocean" Triathklon and 5K Beach Run!

Triathlon

The Huntington Beach Triathlon will take place in beautiful Huntington Beach a.k.a. Surf City, USA. The race will consist of a 600 meter swim, 10 mile bike and a 2 mile beach run.

All ages and experiences are welcome. The race distances are at a level so that the newest or inexperienced triathlete can participate. The course however is unique and challenging enough that even an experienced triathlete will love the event.

5K Run & Walk

Course overview:

Triathlon Course: The swim will be an open water swim in the ocean. It will be an "out and back swim." Participants will start at lifeguard tower #2 on Huntington State Beach and swim roughly 600 meters in the ocean before exiting the water.

The bike portion of the race will take place on the Santa Ana River Bike Trail. Total length of the bike course is 10 miles.

The run portion of the race will be a beach run. It will be an "out and back" run. Participants will start at lifeguard tower #3 on Huntington State Beach and run one mile north and then turn around and run back one mile to the finish line.

5k Fun Run

The Run/Walk will use roughly the same run course along the beautiful Huntington Beach shoreline as the triathlon, and will also finish at the same location.  The course will be extended a bit so that it is a 5K and not just two miles.

The transition area will be in the Huntington State Beach parking lot just south of Brookhurst. Enter the parking lot from PCH at Magnolia Street or Brookhurst Street. Follow the signs to the transition area.
