USA Triathlon Membership
Since the duathlon is a sanctioned USA Triathlon event, all participants MUST have a valid USA Triathlon license (annual or one-day). Registration fees reflect the cost for USAT Annual Members. If you are not a USAT member, adults may purchase a one-day membership for the event at $15 or an annual membership for $50. You will have an opportunity during registration to purchase a membership.
With any event, safety is key, but particularly with a duathlon/triathlon. Please read through the requirements for any person and/or team participating in the duathlon.
1) The team member participating in the bike leg of the event, MUST wear their helmet at ALL times. This is a requirement and failure to do so will result in your team’s disqualification and removal from the event.
2) All duathlon participants MUST have an active membership with USA Triathlon.This is a requirement. If you registered online, your membership has already been verified. Upon check-in to the event, you (and each of your teammates if applicable) will be required to show your photo I.D. Again, you MUST HAVE YOUR PHOTO I.D. in order to participate. NO PHOTO ID, NO RACE, NO EXCEPTIONS.
3) If you are planning to register the morning of the race for the duathlon, you will need to fill out the application (on-site), present your photo I.D. and pay for your membership. A one-day membership can be paid for with cash/check. An annual membership may be paid with cash/check/or card. If you are already a USA Triathlon member, your photo I.D. and your membership will be required. If you do not have your membership I.D., you will need to purchase a one-day membership should you still wish to compete.
If you are participating as part of a team, your entire team will need to be present to check-in. This requirement is to review the rules and regulations of the event but also to explain the timing bands to the entire team at one time to ensure clarity and understanding.
