“Herbalife Nutrition is proud to bring the triathlon back to Los Angeles, after a five year hiatus. This USAT sanctioned event brought some of the sport’s best athletes to our hometown and showcased the best Los Angeles has to offer, from Venice to downtown LA,” said Michael Johnson, Chairman and CEO, Herbalife Nutrition.

Reilly the iconic global IRONMAN announcer known for his “You Are An IRONMAN!” exclamation as competitors crossed the finish line, brought a version of his trademark call to the Herbalife24 Triathlon.

Upon completing the race, athletes and spectators came together at the Finish Line Festival. This festival features entertainment, a kids zone, beer garden, food truck, massage area and the Herbalife24 Recovery Zone.
