More Than 5,500 Participants Compete To Benefit
Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ Pediatric Cancer Research Program

Malibu, CA (September 3, 2013) – Athletes, celebrities, philanthropists and spectators will come together on September 8, 2013 for the 27th annual Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Equinox. Taking place at Zuma Beach, participants will swim, bike and run to raise funds for the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ Pediatric Cancer Research Program.

The Classic Distance Race will start at 7:00 a.m. with a half-mile ocean swim in the Pacific Ocean, an 18-mile bike ride and four-mile run through Zuma Beach.

Proceeds from the Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Equinox will benefit The Basic and Translational Cancer Research Program of the Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Last year, the event raised more than $1.17 million with the help of celebrity participants including Alison Sweeney, James Marsden and Rainn Wilson.

“Thanks to amazing participants and sponsors, the Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Equinox has been successful in continuing to increase its donation to CHLA year after year,” said Michael Epstein, president of Michael Epstein Sports Productions, Inc. “We are proud to support such an outstanding program and know our contributions will lead to notable findings that will benefit so many deserving children.”

“The Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Equinox is a great opportunity for the community to come together to support a remarkable cause,” said Karen Murray, President of Nautica. “Children’s Hospital Los Angeles does such amazing work and we are honored to support them and help raise awareness.”

The Basic and Translational Cancer Research Program at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is committed to curing and preventing childhood cancers, spearheading research of treatments and therapies for children with some of the most life-threatening cancers.
“The patients, parents and staff at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles are so appreciative of the hard work and effort that goes into the Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Equinox,” said Alan S. Wayne, MD, Director of the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Professor of Pediatrics at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. “Funds raised by the triathlon will support our continued medical research and fuel future scientific discoveries and medical advances in the diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer. Our work supported by the Nautica Malibu Triathlon has the potential to improve the lives of countless children throughout the world.”


The Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Equinox is comprised of two races including the Herbalife International Distance Race on Saturday, September 7th, where participants race through a 1.5K swim, 40K bike and 10K run along the sands of Zuma Beach and the Classic Distance Race on Sunday, September 8th, which involves a half-mile ocean swim, 18 mile bike course and 4 mile run. Event-goers can also participate in the Nautica Kids Run, Tot Trot, and enjoy games at the Fun Zone.
