OLYMPIC COURSE

This beautiful course will travel through some of the most picturesque sections of Huntington Beach. The start/finish area and the transition area will be located just off of the Pacific Coast Highway - half mile south of the famed Huntington Beach Pier. The Olympic AquaBike will follow the same swim and bike course as the Olympic Triathlon.

SWIM

The 1500 meter swim will be a point-to-point course in the Pacific Ocean. The swim will conclude with a short run through the sand which will lead into the transition area.

BIKE

After exiting the transition area, athletes will start the two loop, 40k, bike course along Pacific Coast Highway. Each loop of the bike course will consist of long flat stretches with a turnaround at each end. After the second loop, athletes will make a left hand turn into the transition area. 

RUN

After exiting the transition area, athletes will head west parallel to Pacific Coast Highway to begin the one lap run course.  After approximately the first mile, athletes will then make a slight left then right to continue the run on the Huntington Beach bike path. Athletes will continue on the Huntington Beach bike path until reaching Seapoint Street. At Seapoint, athletes will make a left hand turn and head down the bluff onto the sand. For the next quarter of a mile, athletes will continue on the sand until returning again to the Huntington Beach bike path. The course will be extremely well marked for directions and will offer water/aid stations every mile.
