IMPORTANT INFORMATION – DATE CHANGE – SILICON VALLEY KIDS TRIATHLON

 

NEW DATE: AUGUST 5, 2018

 

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE PAGE REGARDING YOUR POTENTIAL OPTIONS – There is a lot of information for you below:

 

Due to unforeseen logistical circumstances, we had to change the date of the Silicon Valley Kids Triathlon from June 10, 2018 to August 5, 2018.

 

This is the first time in our 19 year history that we had to change the date of the event after opening registration, and we sincerely apologize. Extensive time and effort was spent exploring alternate courses and venues to find the best possible solution for our event’s participants but DeAnza College remains the best location for the uniqueness of our event.

 

On behalf of Silicon Valley Triathlon Club’s Race Committee, the organizers of the Silicon Valley Kids Triathlon, we apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause for our participants, vendors, and partners. The Silicon Valley Triathlon Club and the Silicon Valley Kids Triathlon are run 100% by volunteers who are dedicated to providing an amazing event to our community by introducing the sport of triathlon to young athletes in Silicon Valley. We want to have the best event ever on August 5, 2018!

SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS:

 

NOTE: USA Triathlon (USAT) membership fees are non-refundable.

The Silicon Valley Kids Triathlon has no control over or access to your USAT membership.  The $10.00 USAT license fee was not paid to, or collected by, Silicon Valley Kids Triathlon. USAT is the national organization that oversees multi-sport events and sanctions events that follow USAT’s required safety standards. USAT requires all participants to have a USAT membership license, which also provides the athlete with accident insurance coverage for any USAT sanctioned event. The USAT license is good for 1 year. If you are signed up for any other USAT events you will need an active license. 

 

You must have an active USAT license to participate in any of the races connected to the BayArea Kids Tri Series. If your USAT license has expired you must renew the license with USAT. The Silicon Valley Kids Triathlon has no control over this requirement.

If you have any questions about your USA Triathlon Membership License please contact USAT directly at membership@usatriathlon.org or (719) 955-2807.  Please make sure you take advantage of all of the perks and discounts USAT provides which far outweigh the $10 annual fee.
