The third annual Toyota Legacy Triathlon | USA Triathlon Foundation x RSG!
The third annual Toyota Legacy Triathlon hosted by USA Triathlon returned to Long Beach in the middle of July with an action-packed schedule of amateur, elite, elite paratriathlon and youth multisport events. The races were hosted at Alamitos Beach, the proposed site of the triathlon competitions for the 2028 Games.
USA Triathlon hosted the inaugural Legacy Triathlon in 2019, becoming the first national governing body to establish a new annual event in Los Angeles ahead of the 2028 Olympic and Paralympics, becoming an integral part of the build-up to the Games.
We are grateful to continue our partnership with the USA Triathlon Foundation partners and for the chance to integrate our mission and community into the first two days of the event.
Day One: Youth Clinic at Zwift Corporate Headquarter
The youth event hosted by USA Triathlon Foundation and Ready, Set, Gold! On Friday, July 15, at the Zwift Corporate Headquarters in Long Beach hosted children ages 13-16 giving them the opportunity to get an up-close look at the intersection of technology, gaming and sport. Zwift has been an integral partner in supporting youth engagement, including working with the aforementioned organizations to identify eligible schools, put on in-school presentations and develop a unique opportunity for local-area kids.
35 student athletes from ICEF View Park High School and YMCA Golf Team participated along with three former Paralympic and Olympic athletes.
• Kyle Coons, Paralympian
• Giddeon Massie, Olympian
• John Moffet, Olympian
Day Two: John Naber, RSG! Chairman, Competes!
Competitors completed a 750m swim, 20-kilometer bike and 5k run during the race, following the beautiful Alamitos Beach shoreline and through Long Beach city streets. John Naber, along with the other participating Olympians and Paralympians, was paired with two age group athletes to form a relay team and compete in the Toyota Legacy Sprint Triathlon Relay event.
