(As of Oct. 24, 2017, USA Triathlon will allow athletes to apply the cost of up to three (3) one-days licenses (up to $45 total), purchased within the past year, toward and annual age group membership (not valid on elite or youth memberships). Previously, athletes could only apply the cost of one (1) one-day license toward an annual membership. The one-day license receipt is valid for one year from the date of the event it was purchased for. One-day licenses cannot be applied retroactively, however the athlete can apply the one-day(s) toward their next renewal.)
As always, the Santa Barbara Triathlon is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event. As such, for the betterment of our sport and to help keep you safe while participating, USA Triathlon has changed a few guidelines this year. For detailed information about USA Triathlon and any questions pertaining to these guidelines or any rules, please visit their web site at: http://www.usatriathlon.org or call them at (719) 597.9090.
Valid ID – EVERY athlete needs to bring a valid ID in order to pick up his/her packet. NO EXCEPTIONS
USAT Membership Card: Every USAT member must bring a valid USAT membership card. Those of you who forget your card will be asked to pay the single day membership fee. Non members who did not pay the single day fee upon registering for the event will be asked to pay it prior to receiving their packet and participating. Athletes who did pay the Single Day fee can just bring their receipt of this purchase to Packet Pickup.
