All athletes will race under the PC Open rules, not the "USAT Rule Modifications of Paratriathlon." This is a non-drafting race without qualification standards.

Event Cancellation / Modification Policy

In the event of extreme weather, natural disaster, community disaster or other unforeseen emergencies, our action steps will be as follows:

1. USA Triathlon, in concert with local officials, will make the final decision based on safety of the athletes, spectators, vendors, volunteers and others affiliated with the event.
2. USAT may, based on the conditions of the course, shorten the distances or cancel the event altogether.
3. Because costs of the event have already been paid out to cover various levels of production expenses,  there will be NO REFUNDS, transferred entry fees or future complimentary entry fees.

  • Athletes must be entered into the age group that corresponds with their age as of December 31, 2012.
