Playa Del Rey Triathlon
Sprint & International Distance
October 14th, 2012
Join us for the 2012 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 four years the Playa Del Rey Triathlon has raised $15,000
for the UCLA and USC Triathlon Teams!

600m / 1200m Ocean Swim. The swim is located adjacent

are expected to be in the low to mid 60s. Wetsuits are recommended.
Competitors will be sent off in 4 separate waves, spaced 5
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 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.
here for directions from Google Maps. Note that to ensure
participant safety, vehicles should not expect to leave the
parking lot until all competitors are off the bike course,
which is estimated to be around 10-11am.
