The Day at the Beach Triathlon at Hermosa Beach features a fun and safe, beginner-oriented course. The race starts with a cool, refreshing ocean swim (wetsuits are recommended). The swim is followed by a 10 mile bike course which begins by a small climb up Pier Ave. and then heads up Valley Dr. toward Manhattan Beach. The course is generally a smooth loop along Valley Dr. and Ardmore Ave. There will be lots of volunteers and it is always very well marked. The run course is out-and-back with scenic ocean views, on paved roads. If you are a beginner this race is an excellent way to start in the sport of triathlon!
