Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Equinox

A triathlon with an L.A. vibe, the field at Nautica Malibu is a mixed bag of pro athletes, average joes, and Hollywood actors playing triathlete for the day. The Malibu ocean swim, out-and-back bike ride along the Pacific Coast Highway, and 10k on the roads just adjacent to the sands of Zuma Beach are sunny and stunning. Don't forget to smile for the paparazzi.
