September 17, 2023 · Newport Beach, CA

Probably one of the most scenic races in the country. Located at Crystal Cove, you’ll have trouble finding a better race venue so bring the family to hang out on the beach!

The Pacific Coast Triathlon starts at with a beautiful swim in Crystal Cove State Beach. The bike course rolls along a closed Pacific Coast Hwy. The run course runs on the Crystal Cove Path that overlooks the ocean on one side and Pacific Coast Highway on the other. The run takes you through the historical cottages and, if the tides cooperate, the run goes along the beach and back up the path for an amazing finish overlooking the ocean.
