Event transfersDid you train a little more or a little less than you thought you would? You may log in to your runsignup.com account and transfer to a different distance or race. The only cost will be the difference between the race for which you signed up and the current price of the race you now want to do, plus the transaction fee. If you transfer down there will not be a refund. Event transfer deadline date is Feb 1, 2020. We will not field requests to transfer via email the week of the race.
USAT LicenseThe duathlon race requires a one-day or yearly USAT license. To learn more, visit teamusa.org.
Bib giftingDid something come up in life or an injury? We will miss you! But you are allowed to transfer your bib to another participant at no extra cost. Log in to your runsignup account and you can gift the registration to someone else at no extra cost. Yes, you can ask the person for the entry fee, but we don't have to know about it. The t-shirt size will remain the same as what you registered. Bib gifting deadline is Feb 1, 2020. We will not field requests to transfer via email the week of the race. If you still want to be a part of the day, we can always use more volunteers!

Race Day RulesA Message from the Head Referee to all age-group competitors…
Welcome to this USA Triathlon sanctioned event. You are racing under the USAT Competitive Rules. In order to minimize misunderstandings on race day, I hope you will take the time to read the following summary of the Position Violations, which you know as the drafting rules. I have reduced the Position Rules to the following concepts, which everyone can remember:
Position– riding on the left side of the lane without passing.
Blocking – left side riding and impeding the forward progress of another competitor
Illegal Pass – passing on the right.
Overtaken - failing to drop back three bike lengths before re-passing
Drafting – following a leading cyclist closer than three bike lengths and failing to pass within 15 seconds.
All that being said, I hope you have a great race, lots of fun, and achieve all your goals.
