Tomorrow the Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Triathlon will be taking over the streets from Venice to L.A. Live.

The race starts in the ocean at 7:15 a.m., but not everyone will start at the same time. Some of the streets will be closed as early as 6 a.m. Here's the basic run-down from the organizers:

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.

Here is the schedule for the different sections of streets that will be blocked off to traffic:

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

If you plan on checking out the Abbot Kinney Festival, you won't be able to cross Venice Boulevard until 11 a.m. Organizers suggest you park south of Venice Boulevard, where there will be walking access to the beach, or you can drive up the 405 to bypass the street closure.More street closure info can be found at the City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation website or the event's website.
