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

• USAT contributes special awards for top winners and age group winners, which will be in addition to the Luray Triathlon awards.

• There is no qualification needed to enter 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.

• Added excitement and energy due to the prestige of the Championship designation.
