All athletes are required to show aphoto ID. NO ID, NO RACE, NO EXCEPTIONS. Every single participant, including relay participants, must have a photo ID. Youth athletes without an ID must be accompanied by a parent/guardian with a photo ID. Annual members are required to bring their membership card every time they compete in a USAT sanctioned event. If their card has been lost, they can download and print out a temporary one at http://www.usatriathlon.org/membership-services/membership-home.aspx.
Important things to keep in mind during packet pickup:
Below is a breakdown of all membership fees for 2014:
Athletes may only pick up their own packets. Under no circumstances may an athlete pick up a packet for another person. All relay members must be present to receive the packet, or split up the relay packet for each participant.
If an athlete does not bring a photo ID to packet pickup there aretwo options:
·Go home to get it ·Have someone email/fax them a copy of their photo ID
If an athlete does not bring a USAT membership card to packet pickup there are three options: ·Find internet access where a temporary card can be printed ·Go home to get it ·Purchase a one-day membership which can later be applied to a membership renewal by submitting a receipt of purchase
Athletes that need to purchase a one-day license must sign the USAT waiver if it was not included with the event registration process. Annual members do not have to sign a waiver at packet pickup because they signed it when they applied to become an annual member.
