AT THE EVENT
WHERE TO WATCH THE ACTION
There are bleachers located at lifeguard tower 10 on the boardwalk which is directly behind the transition area. Athletes will pass through the transition area as they transition from the swim portion to the bike portion and again from the bike portion to the run portion. There are bleachers located at the finish line as well! If you are going to watch the bikers along Pacific Coast Highway or along the Run Course, please be mindful of the participants and stay behind the barricades and pennant. Go Racers!

CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL LOS ANGELES
The Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Bank of America Merrill Lynch is proud to have partnered with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) since 2007. All fundraising initiatives support CHLA’s pediatric cancer research and we have raised $14 million to date! The majority of our fundraising comes from corporations competing both on and off the course for the fastest race times and the most money raised in the Corporate Challenge and the Entertainment Industry Challenge. From CHLA and the children it treats, thank you fundraisers for your dedication! We encourage every athlete and spectator to visit any of the sponsor booths to sign their well-wishes to the kid’s at CHLA on the posters outside the booth.
