The 10th Annual Los Angeles Triathlon is this Sunday, which means there will be street closures as participants bike from Venice to downtown and then run back and forth (literally) along Grand Avenue. The following streets will be closed and opened in waves as competitors race:

  • Sector 1 - Venice Beach, Venice Blvd. to Fairfax/Wilshire (6:50 AM to 11:15 AM)
  • Sector 2 - Fairfax/Wilshire to Olympic/Cherry (7:10 AM to 12:15 PM)
  • Sector 3 - Olympic/Cherry to 1st/Hope Ave. (7:30 AM to 1:30 PM)

The best map was developed by the city and more nitty gritty maps can be found on the event's website.

As for the best spots to watch the race from, event organizers recommend:
