The stars came out in force for the Nautica Malibu Triathlon in Malibu, Calif., last weekend.


From Jon Cryer of “Two and a Half Men” — who managed to stay out of the medical tent this year after a bike crash in 2012 — to James Marsden of “30 Rock,” Geoff Stults of “The Finder,” Parker Young of “Suburgatory,” Colin Egglesfield of “The Client List” and “E News” host Jason Kennedy, the race drew a wide array of celebs willing to swim, bike and run for a good cause.


Proceeds from the event went to the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ Pediatric Cancer Research Program. The event raised nearly $1.1 million for the cause.


Outside of the celebrities, the race drew more than 5,400 participants over the course of the weekend — there was an Olympic-distance race on Saturday and a shorter race on Sunday. Heather Tom took first in the celebrity female division with a time of 1:54:19.71 for the shorter “classic” distance of a half-mile swim, 18-mile bike and four-mile run. Alec Musser won the celebrity male division with a time of 1:34:46.72. Team The Bold and Beautiful scored bragging rights  in the Celebrity Co-Ed Relay Division with a time of 1:37:23.46.


But celebrities who didn’t want to take on the race participated in other ways: Bret Michaels sang the National Anthem, and Billy Bush of “Access Hollywood” hosted the awards ceremony.
