Event Rules and Regulations

USA Triathlon has issued a set of rules to maintain consistency and order from race to race across the country. The rules include sections on membership, and rules of conduct for swimming, cycling, running, and transition. For all the details about USAT Rules CLICK HERE. The Competitive Rules are intended to provide for the orderly and consistent administration of events sanctioned by USA Triathlon. Every participant, official, volunteer and spectator should consider all safety issues and make related decisions prudently without reliance upon the Competitive Rules.

Safety is a Shared Responsibility
No matter what inspired you to become a triathlete, you’re responsible for showing up at the starting line fully prepared for the challenge ahead of you. Safety in the sport is not just the responsibility of the National Governing Body, sanctioned events and race directors, who are subject to the scrutiny of USA Triathlon’s rigorous sanctioning process and expected to uphold the best safety protocols. It is also the responsibility of the athlete. The concept of shared responsibility is one that USA Triathlon, its sanctioned event race directors and all participants should embrace.
