The energy was high at the 29th annual Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Equinox as over 5,000 participants challenged their fitness capacities by swimming, biking and running across the Malibu coastline and persevered for a good cause. Athletes, locals, philanthropists, celebrities and fans alike gathered to show support and raised over $1.31 million to support the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ Pediatric Cancer Research Program.

A healthy roster of Hollywood stars turned out to participate in the event, including Katherine Kelly Lang, who finished first in the celebrity female division with a time of 1:53:27.05 and Colin Egglesfield, who came in first in the celebrity male division with a time of 1:38:58.36. Team The Amazing Race took the number one spot among the co-ed celebrity relay division with an overall time of 1:26:21.26 Other participants in the celebrity division included Chace Crawford, Jon Cryer, Jack Falahee and Michael Weatherly.

Jason Pedersen prevailed as the overall winner of the triathlon, completing the half-mile ocean swim, 18-mile bike course and four mile run with an impressive time of 1:13:12.59 while Kylie Matulick seized first place in the female division with a time of 1:35:45.63.

The host was Transgender star Jeffrey Tambor, who took some time out of his busy Emmy weekend to donate his time for the cause.

All fundraising efforts from the Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Equinox will go directly to the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ Pediatric Cancer Research Program, a leader in innovative research focused on curing and preventing cancers in children around the globe. This generous donation will support research and finding revolutionary treatments needed for children with the deadliest forms of pediatric cancers.
