Our events are sanctioned by USA Triathlon. As a sanctioned event, we must adhere to USA Triathlon’s Competitive Rules, including age group classifications. The race distance each racer completes is based on their actual age on December 31st of the race year. This age is used to place them in the appropriate age group on race day. As an example, racers that are 10 and turning 11 this year, whether their birthday is in March or in December, will be placed in the 11-12 age group. Racers turning 16 during the race year, are not eligible to participate.
The Buddy Division is for racers ages 3 to 6, and their race age is the age they will be on race day. Buddies receive finisher medals, but are not timed and do not receive age group awards.
