LONG BEACH, Calif. — The second Toyota Legacy Triathlon hosted by USA Triathlon returns to Long Beach this Friday-Saturday with an action-packed schedule of amateur, elite, paratriathlon and youth multisport events. The course for all races is set at Alamitos Beach, the proposed site of the triathlon competitions for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Los Angeles 2028. The event was held for the first time in 2019, as USA Triathlon became the first National Governing Body in the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movement to bring a new annual event to the Los Angeles footprint ahead of the 2028 Games.
The action starts Friday afternoon with a youth community giveback event, rowing (erg) competition, open water swim race and the USA Triathlon Aquathlon (swim-run) National Championships. On Saturday, age-group athletes will compete in the second running of the Legacy Triathlon, which includes an Olympian Pro-Am Relay event.
