NOTE: As with nearly all triathlons, participating in the event also requires you to have a USAT membership. USAT stands for United States of America Triathlon, and is the governing body of all multi-sport events, and is also a subsidiary of the United States Olympic Committee. If you already have a USAT membership, great! If not, you will have the opportunity to purchase a 1-day adult membership during registration for $15 (1-day youth is $10). You can also purchase a yearly membership during registration if you plan to participate in several triathlons. For more information regarding USAT memberships, please visit USAT's website directly.
We will refund the full amount of your registration, minus any registration and USAT fees, if for some reason the event is cancelled for reasons other than weather. If you are registered, but unable to race for medical or other serious reasons, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for options. No other refunds will be given!
