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.

The Legacy Triathlon Welcomes Aquathlon Nationals in 2021

The 2021 Aquathlon National Championships, qualifying for the 2022 World Triathlon Aquathlon Championships, will take place on Friday evening, July 16, 2021 prior to the Legacy Triathlon on Saturday. A discounted rate will be available for athletes who choose to race both Aquathlon Nationals and the Legacy Triathlon. Aquathlon Nationals will follow the same distances as the world championships, a 1000m swim and 5km run.

The Toyota USA Paratriathlon National Championships returns to Long Beach in 2021

USA Triathlon is excited to once again host the Toyota USA Paratriathlon National Championships as part of the Legacy Triathlon in 2021. Paratriathlon Nationals will occur on Sunday, July 18. The nation's top paratriathletes will qualify through regional paratriathlon championships.

Coronavirus Safety Precautions

Please know that the health and safety of all athletes, staff, volunteers and the community at large is USA Triathlon’s highest priority. We are dedicated to providing a safe environment at all USA Triathlon events, and our race logistics and safety plans for 2021 are specifically designed to prevent COVID-19 exposure and transmission. The Legacy Triathlon and Aquathlon National Championships will be held with stringent COVID-19 safety precautions in place according to USA Triathlon’s Safe Return to Multisport initiative. Additional details will be communicated to athletes on a regular basis in the lead-up to the event; however, participants should expect the following safety measures to be in place:

  • Self-screening before arrival at venue
  • Temperature checks upon arrival to venue
  • Limited spectator capacity
  • Contact reduction for all athletes, staff and volunteers
  • Pre-race briefings held virtually instead of in-person
  • Masks worn by all individuals at all times except when actively racing
  • Increased cleaning and disinfecting practices onsite, including hand sanitizer stations throughout venue 
  • Increased spacing between athletes in transition area and swim start
  • Smaller wave sizes
  • Bottled water at aid stations
  • Limited aid stations — athletes encouraged to race with their own nutrition
  • Signage throughout venue reminding athletes to wear masks and remain 6 feet apart whenever possible

These practices are subject to change based on the evolving COVID-19 situation and any restrictions put in place by the host city, county and venue itself.
