Why do I need a USAT membership?

Why do we need USAT membership?

The Gold Nugget Triathlon is sanctioned by USA Triathlon. USAT provides the triathlon with insurance and race support.

All participants are required to be members of USAT in order to participate. Annual and single-day memberships are available for participants 18 and over. If you are not an annual member, your race entry form will serve as your one-day membership application.

The one-day membership fee of $15 is included in your race fee. If you want to purchase an annual USAT membership, sign up on line at USAT and pay the USAT member amount for the Gold Nugget Triathlon when you register. Then, bring your membership card to bib pickup. (Bring receipt if you haven't received your card.)
