The USAT Return to Racing Recommendations for Athletes are for athletes interested in beginning to train and compete again once racing resumes. These have been developed by experienced athletes, race directors and medical experts relying on expert resources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and sport-specific guidelines developed by the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC) and the International Triathlon Union (ITU).

The recommendations provided in this document are broadly focused to allow for clear, flexible, and scalable application across all sizes and scopes of endurance events. Importantly, athletes and event organizers must adhere to any rules or regulations issued by their federal, state, and local authorities; these recommendations are designed to be applied based on those local directives. While event organizers will be taking adequate measures to promote physical distancing and proper hygiene, athletes are also expected to do their part to ensure the health and safety of themselves and fellow competitors.

The Return to Racing Recommendations for Athletes have been developed to align with the USA TriathlonSafe Return to Multisport Guidelines and the three-phased approach for resuming normal business and lifestyle operations as provided by the Federal Government. Please note, these recommendations apply to the location of the athlete’s event, and do not address issues related to athlete travel from areas of risk different than the event location.

• Phase II Overview: In-person racing is permitted with local event size restrictions and strict limitations. Training is permitted with moderate limitations while continuing to adhere to mass gathering thresholds, physical distancing and sanitization protocols. All athlete and event decisions should continue to be consistent with federal, state and local authorities, and aligned with local circumstances.

• Phase III Overview: In-person racing is permitted with no local event size restrictions and moderate limitations. Training is permitted with appropriate modifications, while continuing to adhere to physical distancing and sanitization protocols. All athlete and event decisions should continue to be consistent with federal, state and local authorities, and aligned with local circumstances.
