USA Triathlon is excited to work with the city of Milwaukee for the next two years and offer athletes a new look to the Age Group National Championship weekend.

The race features a 1,500-meter swim, 40-kilometer bike and 10-kilometer run. The Olympic-distance race is acclaimed for featuring one the nation’s top age group fields and serve as a qualifier for Team USA.
Event Security Measures for 2013
Athletes should expect an increased security presence at the 2013 USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships. The city of Milwaukee and USA Triathlon have instituted the following security measures for the safety of all participants and spectators:
- No bags are allowed in transition. Any items you normally would keep in a backpack in transition should be checked into the bag check tent using the clear plastic bag that athletes will receive at packet pick-up. This is the only bag athletes can use for bag check. Backpacks placed in the clear plastic bag will not be accepted. If you do not want to utilize the bag check, USA Triathlon suggests leaving items in your car, with family/friends or in your hotel room.
- Random bag checks at the race venue for spectators and athletes
- Bag checks at expo entrance, swim start area at Discovery World and at the finish line bleachers
- Do not leave bags or backpacks unattended at the venue or on the course. Unattended bags will be confiscated and potentially destroyed.
Thank you for helping us ensure the safety of the athletes and spectators.
