This was Tug's Tavern annual swim-run-swim. Even though Tug's closed in 1985 they have a Facebook page. Tugs Tavern's owner Tom Warren won the Ironman Triathlon in 1979. His appearance on Johnny Carson and in Sports Illustrated was a big part of the popularity for the sport of Triathlon.

I just found the results. I came in 8th for girls 14 and under. The article also ran in the Beverly Hills Independent newspaper and the Beverly Hills Courier.
