Transition

Because the Herbalife Triathlon Los Angeles is a point-to-point course, there are two separate transition areas. T1 is in Venice (swim to bike) and T2 is in Downtown L.A. (bike to run).

Swim-to-Bike Transition (T1) - Venice Blvd, Opens at 5:30am

The swim-to-bike transition will be located in the parking area near the end of Venice Blvd. Athletes will finish the swim and traverse 100 yards to the asphalt parking lot, which will serve as the transition. Hard fencing will surround the transition for safety and security. As the participants exit the water, their time will be recorded for the finish of the swim using computer chip timing as they cross a small scanner on the beach. After completing necessary activities to begin the cycle portion of the course (changing clothes, putting on cycling shoes, helmets, etc.) athletes will head out the north exit of the transition area and onto Venice Blvd., heading east. Transition times will be 15 to 30 seconds for professionals and up to 4 minutes for amateurs. 2012 Transition Map TBD.

Transition 1 (T1) Bag Procedure

Typical T1 items include, wet-suit, goggles, swimsuit, small personal effects

  • At the Health & Fitness Expo, upon check-in you will receive with your race numbers two adhesive luggage tags (much like those you get when boarding airlines and checking luggage). One tag will be used on your T1 bag, the other for T2 bag.
  • Wrap the adhesive tag around a strap of your bag of your T1 bag and bring with you race morning.
  • Mark anything and everything in the bag itself with your race number.
  • When you finish the swim segment of the race, stuff ALL items into this T1 bag.
  • Very important, ANYTHING not in the bag will be considered lost and found. We will not stuff your bag for you.
  • Absolutely no bicycle pumps will be allowed in T1. Note: Take care of filling your tires before you bring your bike to T1. You must put everything in your bag yourself. Everything. There will be limited bike pumps available from us at T1.
  • T1 bags will be loaded by us on to buses and transported to T2 by our shuttle contractor. The first load will leave at 7:30 am and will continue until all bags have been delivered.
  • They will be available at T2 at designated "T2 Bag Pick Up" upon completion of your race on Georgia and Chick Hearn Court.
  • Final note on T1. We will allow bikes ONLY on race day, not the day before. The transition area will open at T1 at 5:30am.

 

Bike to Run Transition (T2) - Flower St between 9th and 11th

Transition 2 will be located on Flower, between 9th and 11th. Athletes will dismount shortly before the bike racks and enter into the transition area. Competitors will place their bikes onto the racks and complete any necessary adjustments for the run course (changing clothes, removing helmets, etc). The run-out will place runners onto 11th and then north on Grand.

Transition 2 (T2) Bag Procedure:

Typical T2 items include running shoes, singlet, small personal effects

  • Participants are heavily encouraged to bring and use their own bag. We will have a size limit of 18" x 6" x 18" (a standard backpack size bag). If you do not have your own bag, we will give you a drawstring goody bag for this use at the Expo. You must bring all of your T2 gear to the Expo upon check in. No exceptions.
  • At the Health & Fitness Expo, upon check-in you will receive in your technical bag two adhesive luggage tags (much like those you get when boarding airlines and checking luggage). One tag will be used on your T1 bag, the other for T2 bag.
