USAT INSURANCE REQUIRMENTS
Pursuant to USAT policy to participate in a sanctioned event you must be a current USAT annual member ($45) with a valid membership card or purchase a single event permit for $12 through the race director. USA Triathlon does not sell single event permits. There is no exception to this requirement.
To better understand the requirements and benefits of becoming a USAT member, please visit the website at www.usatriathlon.org. Look around the site especially at USAT For Me and Membership Services.
If you do purchase a single event permit and get hooked on Triathlon you can receive credit toward an annual membership by attaching the receipt from the event in which you participated and complete and mail the documents to USA Triathlon, Membership Services, 5825 Delmonico Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80919.
Registration and Packet Pickup Clarifications
You must have and present a photo id to register in person and to pick up your packet. NO ID, NO RACE PACKET, NO EXCEPTIONS. This is a USAT policy.
No listening devices of any type will be permitted on the course. If you choose to sneak a listening device onto the course and it is discovered your chip will be removed and you will be disqualified from the event. This policy is not to interfere with your performance but is in place per USAT to ensure safety for you and all racers and event staff. Many accidents are occurring due to racers not hearing other racers or verbal instructions. Safety for all racers, event staff and spectators is our number 1 priority.
Refund and Transfer Policy
There will be no refunds. At the discretion of the Race Director a transfer for the same person to the next year might be possible. This is on a case by case basis and the RD decision is final. Please contact RD via email if a request is needed.
Race Shirt Policy
In order to be guaranteed a custom event shirt you absolutely MUST be registered for the event seven days in advance of race day. The last day date to order a shirt will be provided on the website and registration forms and all participants wanting a shirt must register on or before that date. Please understand if you don’t know you are doing the event a week out how are we to know? If a shirt is important please pre-register by the appropriate date. Due to increasing shirt, shipping and print costs orders are completed for registered racers only. It is also important for each racer to visit the shirt manufacturers’ website to determine the correct size. Each race will identify which website to visit before ordering your shirt.
Finish Awards Policy
Awards will not be provided before the ceremony. If you must depart before the awards ceremony you must notify the race director that day or within one week of the event via email that you would like the award mailed at your expense to the appropriate address. Upon receipt of the $10 shipping and processing fee the award will be mailed but the race director is not responsible for shipping damage. Due to the unique and handmade nature of our awards we cannot assure the item will be shipped without damage during transit. Please understand we have no control over the US Postal Service.
