SEVERE WEATHER PLANS

The Skeese Greets Iron Girl Triathlon will implement a severe weather contingency plan if needed.  In the event of foul weather, the start time of this event may be delayed by up to 1 hour. Should the weather conditions be unsafe for the swim, this event will be changed to a duathlon with distances of a 1 mile run, 11 mile bike, and a 2 mile run. The duathlon will use the same wave starts as the triathlon. If the weather makes it too dangerous for cycling, the event will become a 2 mile run.

USAT Sanctioned Event

This is a USAT sanctioned event. The following rules must be followed:

 

  • You will be required to show your USAT membership card and photo id at packet pickup, or purchase a membership (one-day $12 or annual $45).
  • You must pick up your packet in person. No exceptions.
  • The age group of a participant will be determined by age on Dec. 31 of the event year, not by age on race day. For example, if you turn 25 years old in July of 2015, you will race and be ranked in the 25-29 age group for the entire 2014 season.
  • All youth ages 17 and under are required to be annual USAT members to compete in sanctioned events in 2015. The cost of an annual youth membership is $15 per year.
