There are bleachers located at lifeguard tower 10 on the boardwalk which is directly behind the transition area. Athletes will pass through the transition area as they transition from the swim portion to the bike portion and again from the bike portion to the run portion. There are bleachers located at the finish line as well! If you are going to watch the bikers along Pacific Coast Highway or along the Run Course, please be mindful of the participants and stay behind the barricades and pennant. Go Racers!

Malibutriathlon Kids

The 2XU Malibu Triathlon Tot Trot will be making a triumphant return in 2022 and is NOW OPEN for registration. The Tot Trot is open to runners under the age of 12. Register now using THIS LINK.



Spectators, we respectfully ask that you leave the food in the refreshments tent for the athletes. Children’s Hospital Los Angeles fundraisers that raised over $500 are welcome to join us in the Donor Brunch located just north of the main event site under the large white tent. Please have your blue wristband that may be collected from the CHLA tent on race weekend; replacement wristbands will not be given if lost. Food trucks will be available to all, serving up coffee, tacos, burritos, and other treats near athlete registration.



The 2XU Malibu Triathlon is proud to have partnered with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) since 2007. All fundraising initiatives support CHLA’s pediatric cancer research and we have raised over $16 million to date! 

The majority of our fundraising comes from corporations competing both on and off the course for the fastest race times and the most money raised in the Corporate Challenge and the Entertainment Industry Challenge. On behalf of CHLA and the children it treats, thank you, fundraisers, for your dedication! We encourage every athlete and spectator to visit any of the sponsor booths to sign their well-wishes to the kids at CHLA on the posters outside the booth.
