Map: Tomorrow's Triathlon Taking Over Major Streets in L.A.

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

The Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Triathlon is tomorrow, which means that once participants get out of the water at Venice Beach, they'll be hitting the streets on bike and foot to complete the race that will take them from the West side to Downtown's L.A. Live.

The race starts in waves (no, not those in the Pacific, but rather by sets of participants); the first group begins T1, the swimming, at 7:10 a.m., however the last of the 16 groups doesn't dive in until 9:20 a.m., which means the streets will remain tied up for the entire morning.

The basic traffic considerations are as follows:

The bike course will shut down Venice Blvd from the beach to the 10, Fairfax from the 10 to Olympic, and Olympic from Fairfax to Staples Center. Please note, there will be NO CROSSING POINTS on this year's course. There will be a rolling open from West to East as the athletes finish the race. All streets will be opened by noon.
