Best Spots To Watch Sunday’s L.A. Triathlon:

The 12th Annual Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Triathlon will start at 7:15 a.m. Sunday morning for the pros, which begins with the first leg (swim) at Venice Beach, the second (bike) from Venice Beach to downtown Los Angeles, and the third leg (run)/finish line in downtown LA. at L.A. LIVE Nokia Plaza.

Elite amateurs will start at 7:20 a.m. and all other divisions in waves of 150 people will begin at 7:30 a.m.

The Los Angeles Police Department has compiled this list of best spots to watch the race.

1) Venice Beach Swim Start. At the end of Venice Blvd. at the beach. It is the perfect location to watch all the opening ceremonies, wave starts, the pros, and T1. Watch competitors shed their wetsuits, clip in their bike shoes, jump on their bikes and ride up Venice Blvd. toward downtown.

2) LA LIVE! The finish line for the LA Triathlon. Lots of activity with the finish, entertainment, food and expo vendors. Easy to get to from the start. Just head East on the 10 freeway and off at Grand Avenue.

3) Transition Area #2. The hotbed of activity will be on Flower between 9th and 11th in downtown L.A. This transition area will house both the age group and pro transitions. Activity and excitement all day long and often where the race is won and lost. Watch competitors rack their bikes, change to running shoes and take off on the final leg

4) Olympic run course. Witness athletes starting and finishing their run from this location with T2 adjacent. Olympic Blvd. Pick a spot, watch the cyclists on our closed course as they head toward downtown as both Olympic and Sprint Courses turn and merge at this location.

5) Disney Concert Hall (Grand and 1st Street). At the high point of the bike course nearing the big downhill into T2. Also, the turn around on the Olympic and Sprint run course. It overlooks a beautiful Frank Gehry design and home of one of the city’s finest restaurants, Patina. Walk over to the beautiful new Cathedral or Museum of Contemporary Art just a block away.

6) Rent a helicopter or a blimp. The Hollywood way to see the race, rent one or bring your own. See the entire swim, bike and run sections from above. The best way to see all the action.
