Transferability of Entry:
Event entry fees are not transferable to another person. This is considered to be fraud by the USA Triathlon organization, which issues our event insurance. ID is required at packet pick-up. Selling your race slot or transfer of your slot is strictly prohibited! If you sell or transfer your race slot, you will be disqualified from the event and you, as well as the racer who used your slot will be unable to race in another YellowJacket Racing event for a minimum of 2 years. Additionally, we will report the infraction to USA Triathlon or sanctioning institute, which may subject to you to further sanctions.
Mail-in entries must be completed in their entirety with proper payment or it will be returned to you.
Photo ID and USAT card (if applicable) is required at packet pick-up. You and only you can pick up your race packet. If you arrive at the race site without photo ID, you will have to participate as a spectator only. Sorry, USAT does not allow us to give you your race packet.
USAT requires that all USAT-sanctioned events charge an additional $12.00 per person USAT fee for non-USAT members. This $12.00 fee is a temporary one-day license, which allows you to participate in that USAT-sanctioned event. Current USAT members do not incur this fee.
