Where can I register?
Registration for Tritonman 2017 is now open!! Register here.
Fees will go up on Jan 2nd, and online registration will close on January 20th at 5PM. We will also be offering race-day registration for a flat price (all groups) of $100 ($200 for relay teams). Credit card or check only. No cash for race-day registration.
I am not a USAT Member, Can I still race?
Yes, but you have to become a USAT member first. Don’t fret its easy, and there are two options! You can either go to membership.usatriathlon.org and purchase an annual membership ($50 for adults) or you can purchase a one-day membership when you pick up your packet ($15).
What about refunds? How about registration transfers?
We will honor and and all refund requests made before 11:59PM, January 8, 2017. Transfers are the world’s most painful thing to do, so if you don’t want to go but your friend does, just request a refund through our registration page or at email@example.com, and have your friend sign up on their own!
When is it?
The traditional triathlon will be the next day, Jan 21st. First wave on Saturday starts at 6:45 AM, and first wave on Sunday will head into the water at 7:00AM.
Check-in will start at 5:00 AM and will end at 6AM on Saturday.
What if it rains?
If it rains, we will be consulting the City of San Diego water quality agency to see what the bacteria levels are in Mission Bay. If they are at an unsafe level to swim in, we will have to make Tritonman a duathlon (run-bike-run) to ensure safety to all competitors.
5:00 AM is early! Can I pick up my packet before the race?
We’ll have an opportunity for packet pickup the day before the race :
We will be having Packet pick up on Friday Jan 20th from 11am-5pm at Moment Bicycles at 2816 Historic Decatur Rd Suite 135, San Diego, CA 92106
We heartily encourage all of our racers to take advantage; shorter lines in the morning are less stressful for everyone!
What’s the course?
The race will take place at Fiesta Island, the site of the first triathlon (like, ever). See the “course” link on the left for more details about last year’s course.
I can only [swim/bike/run]. Can I just do that one?
Nope. But you can find 2 other athletes and form a relay team. One person competes in each discipline, handing off your “baton” (the timing chip) in transition. If you have never tried this before, relays are a ton of fun.
Is this race beginner friendly?
YES! While the prospect of an open-water swim in February can be terrifying to non-swimmers, this swim is in Mission Bay, which will be both warmer and calmer than a true open-ocean swim. The bike is on a closed course, riding around Fiesta Island, which is both flat and fast. The run will take you out into the beautiful parks that circle Mission Bay, where you will be on jogging paths.
Are there prizes?
Because we have the best sponsors in the world, yes. There will be race prizes.
