Coming November 1, 2014. A picture perfect end-of-season triathlon…check out the Catalina Island Triathlon. This half mile swim, 15K bike, and 3.1 mile run on the beautiful island of Catalina is a great way to enjoy the small island off the coast of Los Angeles. The water is clear and cool, and if you’re lucky, you might even see some of the schools of flying fish and the bright orange Garibaldi. The bike and run routes will provide a challenge with the many hills which are off-set by the gorgeous scenery. Experience the postcard-perfect venue of Catalina Island.
