Best Spots to Watch the Race
Venice Beach Swim Start
At the end of Venice Blvd. at the beach. It is the perfect location to watch all the opening ceremonies, wave starts, the pros, and T1.
The finish line for the LA Triathlon. Lots of activity with the finish, entertainment, food and expo vendors. Easy to get to from the start. Just head East on the 10 freeway and off at Grand Avenue.
Transition Area #2
T2 (bike to run) will be located on flower between 9th and 11th. Spectators will not be allowed inside the transition area, but they will be allowed to watch from the outside.
Chick Hearn Court
Stand in the shade of STAPLES Center and LA LIVE while you cheer for triathletes nearing the end of their bike segment and into the finish chute. This is also the turn around point for the Olympic runners.
Olympic Run Course
Witness athletes starting and finishing their run from this location with T2 adjacent.
Pick a spot, watch the cyclists on our closed course as they head toward downtown as both Olympic and Sprint Courses turn and merge at this location.
Disney Concert Hall (Grand and 1st Street):
At the high point of the bike course nearing the big downhill into T2. Also, the turn around on the Olympic and Sprint run course. It overlooks a beautiful Frank Gehry design and home of one of the city's finest restaurants, Patina. Walk over to the beautiful new Cathedral or Museum of Contemporary Art just a block away.
Rent a helicopter or a blimp:
The Hollywood way to see the race, rent one or bring your own. See the entire swim, bike and run sections from above. The best way to see all the action.
