This Sunday, LATriathlon Venice Beach Swim Start = No driving or parking.

It’s Friday!! When you head back to the hood tonight be sure to take extra notice of where you park your wheels for the weekend. The 2010 Los Angeles Triathlon is Sunday, October 3rd and all the action begins here in Venice Beach with the Swim Start at the end of Venice Blvd. It’s a great place to catch the opening ceremonies, wave starts, the pros, and T1 section of the Triathlon BUT not a great place to park.

After the Swim event the race continues with the Bike event up Venice Blvd. to Fairfax Ave. and east on Olympic Blvd.  Then it finishes with the Run in downtown L.A.
