2014 Nautica Malibu Triathlon Reconn, 09.11.2014

The following reconnaissance report is from "County Recurrent" freelance correspondent, paddler, lifeguard, media guru, Adam Sandler:

Here's the view the swimmers will see of the Nautica Triathlon footprint and the shoreline as they swim north to the Swim Finish line. 

Swimmers, Runners, Cyclists... !!!

Unless you're competing in the 2014 Nautica Malibu Triathalon, it might be a good idea to steer clear of Zuma Beach starting Friday morning and through Sunday. BOTH SIDES of PCH are off limits to parking starting at 0400 on Saturday and Sunday, and 2,000 competitors will start picking up their race packets on Friday.

The International Race starts at 0700 on Saturday, and the Classic Race starts at 0700 on Sunday. It's a 1/2 mile swim, 18 mile bike ride up PCH to Leo Carrillo State Beach and back, and a 4 mile run along Zuma Beach.

Here are some images taken today:

Some Triathlon swimmers on a check out swim this morning. A few got into trouble during a larger set and the OLs standing by had to help a few of them out.
