Do you offer refunds?

Due to advanced ordering and preparation, we cannot refund your fees. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Can I transfer my individual race entry to another person?

No, individual registrations MAY NOT be transferred from one person to another.  Relay teams may switch members and should contact info@nauticamalibutri.com to recieve a link to make the change. Please note, each change or addition to a relay team will result in a $25 fee.

Can I sign up the day of the event?

The race has sold out every year and we expect this year to be no exception. Therefore, we will not have race day registration. We encourage you to register early.

If the event is sold out, can I be put on a wait list?

No. Once the event is sold out, we will not be taking any other entries or have any wait lists.

I can bike and run, but I’m nervous about the ocean swimming.

We will be holding an ocean swim clinic prior to the race taught by Los Angeles County’s top lifeguards! The clinic for 2016 will be announced after registration opens.

Do I need to wear a wetsuit?

Wetsuits are not required, but most people do choose to race in them. The water temperature is usually 62-66 degrees. We recommend XTERRA Wetsuits and they are offering a great deal to Nautica Malibu Triathlon athletes. Visit www.xterrawetsuits.com and enter the code R-MESP to receive 60% off your wetsuit purchase (with the exception of the Vendetta).

I am interested in purchasing a new bike - any suggestions? Can I rent a bike?

Are you looking for a new bike for your training and racing? Be sure to test ride a Cannondale Bicycle at their booth. They will be at the Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Equinox expo all weekend, where they will have technicians on hand to help you make sure your bike is ready for the race.

Newbury Park Bike Shop also offers bikes available to rent on race day. Please click here to reserve your rental. Contact dorothy@npbikeshop.com if you have any questions.

What is the mountain bike division?

The mountain bike division is for those people who are racing using a mountain bike instead of a road bike.  The width of your tires must be 1.75 inches or larger.  These tires can be smooth, knobby, or with tread.
