Introduced in 2014, the 21st century Herbalife Triathlon course is designed in a small footprint, spectator-friendly, looping International Triathlon Union (ITU)-style format. The course is located entirely in the City of Torrance, which is ideal for this type of course. The start and finish is on Torrance Beach with the bike and run segments on city and residential streets, and in Miramar Park and the beachfront path.

Torrance Beach is a local historic site and was part of what was once known as the Hollywood Riviera Beach Club from 1931 to 1958.
- The course is similar to what is being used in ITU World Cup races
- Competition distances will include Olympic, Sprint and Super Sprint, relays, two youth courses and a 5K running race
- For the first year of the new course the participant field will be limited to 1,500.
The City of Torrance and Pacific Sports are looking to the future and the possibility of an ITU World Cup event, which has never been held in the Los Angeles area. “We have had a preliminary discussion with the ITU about a potential event here,” said Jack Caress, president of Pacific Sports. “The change from the old style point-to-point course to a closed loop course is part of our preparation to elevate talks about hosting an ITU event in Torrance.”
