Join us for the 2013 UCLA Health Playa Del Rey Triathlon. Set along the beautiful bluffs of Dockweiler State Beach in Playa Del Rey, competitors can select between a sprint-distance (600 meter swim, 20K bike, and 5K run) or International-distance (1200m swim, 40K bike, and 10K run) event. The PDR Tri is a fundraiser for collegiate triathlon and a portion of the proceeds are donated to the UCLA & USC Triathlon Teams. Over the last five years the UCLA Health Playa Del Rey Triathlon has raised $18,000 for the UCLA and USC Triathlon Teams!
The UCLA Health Playa Del Rey Triathlon is located at Dockweiler State Beach in Playa Del Rey.
600m / 1200m Ocean Swim. The swim is located adjacent to the transition area at Dockweiler Beach. Water temperatures are expected to be in the low to mid 60s. Wetsuits are recommended.
20K / 40K Bike. The bike course is a one-lap (sprint) or two-lap (international) counter-clockwise loop, involving portions of Vista Del Mar, Imperial Hwy, Pershing Dr., and Westchester Parkway. The course has good pavement and is mostly flat, aside from some gradual rollers along Westchester Parkway. Roads are almost entirely closed to vehicle traffic and times should be very fast save for some strong headwinds that often blow through the area.
5K / 10K Run. The run course is an out and back loop along the Dockweiler service road (sprint & international) and Ballona Creek Bike Path (international). Completely flat, competitors can expect extremely fast run times. Aid stations will be located at the 5K turn-around and 10K turn-around.
The UCLA Health Playa Del Rey Triathlon is located at Dockweiler State Beach in Playa Del Rey. From the 405, take the 105 West. The 105 will turn into Imperial Hwy, which dead-ends at the Dockweiler State Beach entrance. Have $8 in cash ready to pay for parking in order to avoid traffic delays in entering the park. Event staff will direct you to a parking spot. Local athletes should note that Vista Del Mar north of Imperial will be entirely closed to traffic.
