EP 23 LEGACY TRIATHLON

Tuesday, February 5th

The Legacy Triathlon is coming to Los Angeles! The City of Long Beach is hosting and USAT President Barry Siff, Legacy Tri Event Director Brad Hildebrandt, and Executive Director at USAT/Manager of the USAT Foundation Dave Deschenes, the guys who are making this possible are out guests on the 7 Day Warrior Podcast!

USA Triathlon is proud to unveil 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. In its inaugural year, the Legacy Triathlon will feature a non-draft sprint-distance course (750-meter swim, 18.9-kilometer bike, 5-kilometer run) and will be open to 750 age-group and PC Open athletes. Registration is now open, and no qualification is required!

The long-term vision is to build this event into a multi-day festival that includes both age-group and elite racing — starting as an International Triathlon Union (ITU) Triathlon World Cup and ultimately becoming a stop of the ITU World Triathlon Series, the highest level of elite ITU racing.
