Chip Timing:

This race will be timed using a chip timing system. Upon checking in you will receive a chip that is traditionally worn on the ankle. It is the athlete’s responsibility to wear the chip during the entire race. If you do not wear the chip you will NOT be timed.

The Athlete is also 100% totally responsible for the return of the chip. Our waiver will have a disclaimer that must be signed that states you, the athlete, must return the chip or be billed accordingly by our timing company. It is the racer’s responsibility to make sure that if you cannot attend the race, the chip will be returned within 7 days to USA Productions at the following address.  If the timing chip is not returned the participant will be charged $30.

USA Triathlon Sanctioning:

USA Triathlon provides comprehensive insurance coverage to sanctioned events. The coverage provides liability coverage to protect the race director, sponsors, volunteers, officials, and participants. The athlete excess medical coverage protects each participant for the day of the event.

Athlete Excess Medical: When athletes purchase a USA Triathlon annual license or one day permit, a portion of those fees cover the cost to provide them with excess medical insurance. This coverage only extends to their participation in an USA Triathlon sanctioned event and is only available after the injured party has filed with any primary insurance policies.

Event Liability: USA Triathlon provides comprehensive liability insurance coverage to sanctioned events. The USA Triathlon policy automatically covers USA Triathlon race directors, sponsors, volunteers, officials, and participants while participating in sanctioned events. Single-event permit can only be purchased through the race director and is $12 at packet pickup or the day of the event. USA Triathlon does not sell single-day permits.

All athletes should arrive at least 1.5 hours early. This year’s event will begin promptly at 7:00 AM.
