A Note from USA Triathlon Regarding COVID-19

Dear Athletes,
As the situation surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to evolve rapidly, we are writing to provide an update on the 2020 Legacy Triathlon, USA Triathlon Paratriathlon National Championships, and Long Beach PATCO Sprint Triathlon Panamerican Cup which are scheduled for July 17- 19 in Long Beach, CA. Please know that the health, safety and well-being of you and the community at large is our highest priority. 
USA Triathlon is in regular contact with the local authorities in Long Beach, including the Department of Health. We are aware of the recommendation by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to cancel or postpone in-person events per CDC guidelines, which continue to evolve, throughout the United States through mid-May.
We are taking these circumstances into close consideration. As this situation is rapidly evolving, any changes to the status of the event will be communicated to athletes immediately.  
We appreciate your understanding as we work through this dynamic and ever-changing situation, while keeping your safety at the forefront of all decision-making. Please do not hesitate to reach out to nationalevents@usatriathlon.org with questions or immediate concerns.
Thank you,

Brad Hildebrandt, Race Director


Start Your Legacy July 18, 2020 in Long Beach

USA Triathlon is proud to return to Long Beach for the Legacy Triathlon, a non-draft sprint-distance race, inclusive of Physically Challenged (PC) Open athletes, that will be held annually beginning July 20, 2019 in Long Beach — proposed site of the triathlon competitions at the Los Angeles 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The 2020 Legacy Triathlon will feature a non-draft sprint-distance course (750-meter swim, 22-kilometer bike, 5-kilometer run) and will be open to age-group and PC Open athletes. A three-person relay option is also available. Registration is now open, and no qualification is required! In addition, the Legacy Triathlon will include an Open Water Swim competition in partnership with USA Swimming and U.S. Masters Swimming, a PATCO Sprint Triathlon Panamerican Cup, a Splash and Dash Youth Aquathlon, a paratriathlon skills clinic, and a host of other ancillary events. 

Toyota USA Paratriathlon Nationals Return to Long Beach

In conjunction with the Legacy Triathlon, the 2020 Toyota USA Paratriathlon National Championships will return to Long Beach on July 18. Paratriathlon athletes will cover a 750m swim, 22km bike, and a 5km run.  

“USA Triathlon is proud to recognize the incredible achievements of U.S. paratriathletes while continuing to lead the professionalization of paratriathlon worldwide,” said Amanda Duke Boulet, Paralympic Program Director at USA Triathlon. “We look forward to showcasing the sport in Long Beach once again next year, with an improved course that enables all paratriathlon competitors to race to their potential.”

Celebrating Southern California's Rich Olympic History 

The Legacy Triathlon will enable USA Triathlon to contribute to Southern California’s Olympic lore and rich triathlon history by giving back to the local multisport community. USA Triathlon is the first National Governing Body to bring a new annual event to the Los Angeles footprint as part of the lead-up to 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Our mission is to start building our legacy before, rather than after, the Games — starting at the grassroots level, and over time becoming a prestigious international event featuring elite and age-group athletes, as well as paratriathletes, from around the world.

To give back to the local multisport community and fulfill its mission of opening pathways to triathlon for all, the USA Triathlon Foundation has committed a total of $100,000 in funding — $10,000 per year through 2028 — to support local community initiatives in conjunction with the Legacy Triathlon.
