Course Description
The typical water temperature in Long Beach in June is 64 degrees. Water conditions are excellent and very safe. There are no waves inside the breakwater where the swim takes place.  The course is out-and-back with the elites doing two laps (one lap for sprint event).  Elites will complete 2 loops on the course.

The technical bike course cruises along on Shoreline Drive, Queensway Bridge and past the Queen Mary, around the Aquarium of the Pacific with a U-turn at Linden Avenue. The sprint bike course is 12.4 miles in length with 2 loops of the course.  The Olympic bike course will be 4 loops of the course.

Fast course along bike path adjacent to Shoreline Village and the Marina with a view of the Queen Mary the entire way. Elites will do two loops of run course.

Transition Area: 
Alamitos beach parking lot adjacent to Alfredo’s Beach Shack and below the Villa Riviera apartment building (south of Shoreline Drive).

Parking and Directions:
All athletes should plan on parking in the Junipero beach parking lot. You will enter the parking lot from Ocean Blvd., taking Junipero down the hill and turning right to use the far west portion of the parking lot. 

Athletes will ride their bikes along bike path approximately a .5 mile west to the transition area to begin setting up and preparing for the race. Please bring all race equipment you will need after parking and riding to the transition area.
