COVID19 Update April 7th

New Date: TBD

We’re all in the midst of the most trying times in our lifetimes, and during this period of uncertainty we hope that everyone is practicing good social distancing especially during these next couple of crucial weeks. 

We’re now in the month of April, which is typically the beginning of triathlon season. As you’re aware, last month we announced the postponement of both the Azalea Triathlon and our spring White Lake triathlon festival until 2021.  Today we are announcing the formal postponement of the Lake Norman State Park Triathlon and the Pinehurst Triathlons (Sprint & International) until 2021.

These are unprecedented times and we appreciate your patience and grace as we travel these uncharted waters.  We appreciate your business and have modified our existing policies to create several options to give you maximum flexibility in your 2020-21 racing season.  Although we are not offering a refund option we are offering three options which we have found to be some of the most generous in the endurance industry.   We appreciate your understanding on this matter.

OPTION #1 - Transfer to an equivalent race in 2020.  (Transfer sprint to sprint, international to international or half to half).  You may transfer your registration anytime during the 2020 triathlon season. Transfer Instructions.

OPTION #2 - Defer your 2020 to the same race in 2021.   You do not need to do anything at this time, you will be sent instructions on redeeming your 2020 race when registration opens on November 1, 2020.

OPTIONS #3 - Transfer to a similar distance race in 2021.  You do not need to do anything at this time, you will be sent instructions on redeeming your 2020 race when registration opens on November 1, 2020.

USAT One Day Fees: If you purchased a USAT One Day Fee we are working with USAT to re-activate codes for one day fee usage should you decide to transfer to another event. Please be patient as this process may take some time.

Thanks for your patronage and we look forward to seeing your smiling faces crossing a finish line soon!  Until then please remember

No Shirt/No Swag Registration Option

NEW for 2020 - "No Shirt/No Swag" Registration Option

For 2020, participants will have the option of registering for a race at a discounted price and NOT receiving the race shirt and any “swag” given away at the race. If you opt to do this, select the registration category that fits you (Individual or AquaBike), and when you get to the stage during this registration process where you pick your t-shirt size – you’ll see a “No Shirt/No Swag” option – and the discounted amount.

If by chance, at a later date, you decide that you'd like to have the race shirt or swag, you'll be able to purchase a race shirt and the swag at the race site following the conclusion of the race. Be aware, that should you do this, the items will cost more than by purchasing them when you register.


1)  Anyone registering after 4/18 - WILL NOT receive a race shirt or swag 
2)  Relay teams do NOT have this “No Shirt/No Swag”option. All relay team members will automatically receive shirts and swag.
