USAT Regional Championship

Have you heard? The Luray Sprint Triathlon is now the 2015 USAT Mid-Atlantic Regional Short Course Championship! We are honored to receive this designation from USAT.

So what does this mean?

• USAT uses select races in each region to be the championship race for specific distances and types. Only top races are selected!

• USAT will contribute some special awards to be handed out to the top winners and age group winners, which will be in addition to the Luray Triathlon awards being awarded.

• There is no qualification needed to enter on the Luray Sprint Triathlon USAT Championship…everyone can enter.

• Placing top 10% in each age group does qualify you to participate in the 2016 Sprint Nationals.

• There is sure to be some added excitement and energy during the race provided by event staff and participants due to the prestige of the Championship designation.

• Checkout the USAT Mid-Atlantic page http://www.usatriathlon.org/regions/mid-atlantic/contents.aspx
