Age Group National Championship weekend will move to the city of Milwaukee, WI for 2013 and 2014. Milwaukee will give athletes and spectators that big city feel, while still allowing athletes to stay close to the race site. The city offers hotels, shops, and restaurants all within a mile of the venue, located adjacent to Henry Maier Festival Park. 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 2013 USA Triathlon Sprint National Championship will take place on August 11, 2013 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Sprint National Championship is a non-drafting, sprint distance event (750 m Swim, 20 km Bike, 5 km Run). There are no specific qualification standards for the Sprint National Championship. This is a Team USA qualifier.
Transition will be located adjacent to Henry Maier Festival Park along the shores of Lake Michigan.
Event Security Measures
Be prepared for an increased security presence at the 2013 USAT Age Group National Championships. Due to the events that took place this year in Boston and the heightened security warnings the city of Milwaukee and USA Triathlon have instituted a strong security plan, and a heavy security presence for the weekend. For spectators and athletes, this means you should be prepared for random bag checks at the race venue. If you have a bag, you will be checked at the expo entrance, swim start area at Discovery World, and when entering the bleachers at the finish line. These measures have been instituted for the safety of everyone at the venue. Please understand these are not just added headaches we have created for athletes and spectators. With everyone's cooperation these implemented processes should not impact your days too much while at the venue.
Also, do your due diligence and do not leave any bags or back packs laying around the race venue or course. These will be confiscated and could be potentially destroyed. No bags are allowed in transition, so any items you wish to keep for after the race need to be checked into the bag check tent. At packet pick up you will receive a clear plastic bag and anything that you wish to have held in the bag check tent needs to be placed in that clear plastic bag. Back packs cannot simply be placed in the clear plastic bags. If you do not wish to place a bag in the bag check tent, we suggest you leave items in your car, with a loved one, or in your hotel room.
