If you are currently a USAT member, please make sure to bring your proof of membership when you pick up your packet. If you do not bring this proof, you will be
charged the one-day membership fee. If you are not an annual member, you will need to purchase a one-day membership (to insure you as a triathlete) before you are able to pick up your packet. One-day membership will be collected when you register online. A USAT Official will be at the event and will be enforcing all USAT rules. It is strongly suggested you visit the USAT website for the complete list of rules and review. Race management reserves the right to remove an athlete from the course and DNF the athlete if course officials determine there is no possibility of an athlete finishing the given discipline (swim, bike, run) before the posted cut off times based on an athlete’s location, time, and average speed up to that point.

ADDITIONAL RELAY INFORMATION:
Relay triathlon is a WONDERFUL way to experience a triathlon if you are not ready to run the whole thing, if you are not capable of competing in a specific leg, or if you just want an opportunity to share something unique with friends or family. A triathlon relay can be done with 2 or 3 people. The team can consist of all male participants, all female or mixed. Each person does 1 or 2 legs of the race. The timing chip will have a Velcro strap on it and is handed off from one athlete to the next in transition. All athletes receive full swag and finisher medals.
Spectators, the unsung hero of the triathlon. Without family and friends there to cheer us forward, the rigors of our sport would be far more difficult. MSE Racing is dedicated to ensuring that these vital portions of our triathlon family are given the opportunity to enjoy themselves while they wait for the next opportunity to see you fly by.
MSE Racing is proud to provide the following amenities:
Sign making craft table for kids
Yard game section
Music for additional entertainment
Vendor and club booths available to visit
So, bring out those cow bells and noise makers for a fun day at the race!
