Event details and schedule

Transfer & Refund Policies

All participant entries are non-transferable and non-refundable. You may not transfer or sell your race number to another person and we do not offer deferrals to events in the next season or another event in the series.

USAT Age Up Rule

All USAT races, including the Iron Girl, will use the "Age Up Rule" for award distribution and ranking. The age up rule means you are racing based on your age as of 12/31/2017. This action aligns regular U.S. age group racing with the method used by USA Triathlon for its National Rankings Program

All participants are expected to attend packet pick up Saturday in person. This is due insurance liability mandates. All participants must show a photo ID, and all USAT annual members additionally must show their membership card. Per USAT rules, each participant must pick up their own packet. NO EXCEPTIONS. A unique wristband will be affixed at this time which must remain on through to the end of the race.

Special notice to participants in regard to USAT Membership for Registration

Participants MUST bring proof of annual membership or purchase a one-day permit. Athletes who do not bring/show proof of membership must purchase a one-day OR will not be allowed to race. If you purchased the one day license when you registered, your name will be on a list we have and you do not need to bring anything other than photo ID.

Participants who forget their USAT membership cards will have four options:

Competitive Wave - The Iron Girl Competitive Wave has been created for our more experienced athletes looking to really push themselves this year.
