SPECIAL PRIZE: IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, KONA

If you participate in and complete the Ironman World Championship, Kona and you wear the LA Tri Club kit, you will receive a $250 bonus -- even if you do not end up on the podium!

The Kit (top & bottoms) must be worn for both the bike and run.  You must submit a completed Podium Program Claim Form no later than 30 days from the date of the race.

RULES

You must be a registered, paid up, bonafide member of the LA Tri
Club WHEN YOU DO THE RACE! Races run before your membership
are not eligible retroactively.

All races must be run in LA Tri Club gear. You don’t have to be head-to-toe but you must have a jersey/jacket/singlet or shorts -- something
to let the world know you are down with the red, white and blue. A
hat is not enough.

HOW TO CLAIM A RACE

If a claim is found to be false, membership will be revoked.

You must race IN YOUR OWN NAME. Relays do not count.

You must enter as a member of LA Tri Club when the race allows you
to do so. Some races don’t have a club selection or a club championship,
but if they do, you must enter as an LATC member.

You are responsible for entering completed races into the derby page
on our website. We’ll verify at the end of the season, but it’s up
to you to track your progress.

5 completed races gets you entered once into the drawing, 7 completed
races gets you in twice, and 9 or more gets you in three times.

All races count as *one* except M-Dot Ironman races that count as
*two*.

You have to complete the race. Just entering isn’t enough!

If you don’t like the list of races or these rules, you are encouraged to
take up lawn bowling.

How did we select the races? The major criteria are:

  • Timing -- races spread out from March through October.
  • LATC Club-Select Races are included in this list.
  • Ability -- Anyone from newbies to pros can all have an opportunity to qualify.
  • Discounts -- many of the races give entry-discounts to LA Tri Club members.
  • USAT -- Most of the races are USAT certified. Those that aren’t usually hold themselves to high standards of quality and safety.
  • National/international prominence -- races that aren’t local are high caliber USAT/ITU championship events or M-Dot Ironman races
