IMPORTANT NOTE FOR RELAY TEAMS: Each relay team member must personally present their own photo ID at packet pickup to obtain their respective portion of the chip packet contents as well as their swag bags.

USAT rules clearly state, “NO ID, NO RACE.”Relay team members must personally present their own photo ID at packet pickup to obtain their respective portion of the chip packet contents as well as their own swag bags.

Water Temperature

In a normal year, the surface water temperature (top 12-18 inches) should be in the 72-75F range at Cottage Grove Lake. We will announce the water temperature on race day approximately one hour prior to the start.

USAT wet suit policy

Each age group participant shall be permitted to wear a wet suit without penalty in any event sanctioned by USA Triathlon up to and including a water temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit. When the water temperature is greater than 78 degrees, but less than 84 degrees Fahrenheit, age group participants may wear a wet suit at their own discretion, provided however that participants who wear a wet suit within this temperature range shall not be eligible for prizes or awards. Age group participants shall not wear wet suits in water temperatures equal to or greater than 84 degrees Fahrenheit. The wetsuit policy for elite athletes shall be determined by the USAT Athletes Advisory Council. Effective January 1, 2013, any swimmer wearing a wetsuit with a thickness measured in any part greater than 5 millimeters shall be disqualified.

USA Triathlon Sanctioning

USA Triathlon is the national governing body for the sports of triathlon, duathlon, winter triathlon and aquathlon in the United States. Participation in a USAT sanctioned event means the event director has the proper permits in place, liability and athlete excess medical insurance coverage and the event plan has met the standard of organization required. USA Triathlon provides rules, guidance and governance to set the standard for safe and fair multi-sport races.
