There are 10 separate events included in the overall DIY Tri. Do only one, or as many as you want.
Everyone knows our local Santa Cruz elite triathletes Tommy and Katie Zafares, right? Just in case you don't know - Katie is the number one ranked female triathlete in the world right now, and Tommy is an elite athlete and professional photographer who follows the ITU circuit and creates the most spectacular race photograhy.
They have offered up a challenge for you for the DIY Tri - beat their segment times for a swim, bike or run (or whole race time) for a sprint or Olympic triathlon and we'll get you some pretty cool goodies and recognition. The only rule is that women have to try and beat Katie's time and men have to beat Tommy's time.
Katie's times for the Abu Dhabi Sprint are:
Tommy's Sprint Times for Patco Sprint Pan American Cup (2nd Overall)
Katie's Olympic Times for Yokohama Olympic Distance
Tommy's Olympic Time for Moololaba ITU
You will have the opportunity during registration to sign up for as many events as you want. You can choose to do only one, do one a week, or all 10 events in the month. It’s totally up to you.
Each event is $15 (Seriously, we wanted to make them all free but even with a virtual event we have to pay for things like websites, sanction and insurance, prizes, mailing, etc).
If you do a couple of the events and decide to come back and do more you can just log in and sign up for more events. The multiple event discount will apply when you have more than 3 events in your cart.
Your bib numbers for each event will be automatically assigned as you register, each event will have a different bib number so they can match up with results files, and they will show up in your athlete profile for each event. If for some reason you can’t find them we’ll help you!
When you register you will automatically get a pdf file that has artwork for the following items included:
If you are an annual member we will ask for your number during registration. If you are not an annual member you WILL NOT have to pay for the one-day USAT License. USAT will be back-end processing of one-day membership licenses for all participants from our submitted registration lists. You'll be asked to sign the USAT Virtual Event Waiver as part of your registration process. Other than that, there's nothing else you have to do!
Unfortunately, because it’s a virtual event there won’t be any annual rankings but we still want to keep track of who is participating - and don't forget we'll have some fun - because that's the purpose of this whole thing!
As some incentive for submitting your results our sponsor Road ID has provided some very generous $35 gift certificates for participants. The top two male and female finishers in each individual event will be receiving one of these. Combined with the $10 certificate you get just for registering you’ll be able to order some amazing Road ID swag.
We’re still working with sponsors on the prizes for those of you who do more than one event or for clubs who take on the challenge. We’ll make sure they are fun and something the whole team can share!
