When and where do I pick up my packet?
TRIATHLON: Packet Pickup times and locations are different for every race. Please go to your race website and find the pertinent Packet Pickup information. There is NEVER a Packet Pickup on race day, so please plan accordingly.
RUNNING: Packet Pickup times and locations are different for every race. Please go to your race website and find the pertinent Packet Pickup information. For most running events we have race day registration and packet pick-up. Check each event’s information!
What do I need to bring to Packet Pickup?
TRIATHLON: A picture ID and your USAT membership card (or a USAT single-event permit)
RUNNING: No photo ID or membership is required. If you have a photo of Marcia Brady, you will be kissed. If you have a Ryan Seacrest key chain you will be asked to leave.
I’m not a USAT member. Where can I get a USAT single-event permit?
TRIATHLON: USAT permits are mandatory for anyone participating in any Dallas Athletes Racing event. If you are not already a USAT member you will have the option of purchasing a single-event permit ($10) or you can sign up for a yearly membership ($39) during online registration. If you would like to purchase a one-year membership for USAT separately, please visit their website for complete information.
RUNNING: What the #$% is USAT? It does not apply to runners.
If I am a USAT member, do I have to bring my USAT membership card to race packet pick up?
TRIATHLON: Yes, if you do not bring your card with you, you will be required to purchase a single-event permit. *NO EXCEPTIONS.*
RUNNING: Again, USAT does not apply to runners. BUT, IRS often applies to runners who mess with their taxes!
If I am unable to make the race can I get a refund?
TRIATHLON & RUNNING: As is clearly stated in all of our materials, there will be absolutely NO REFUNDS.
If you are unable to compete due to illness and/or injury then you may qualify for a medical transfer to next year’s event. In order to qualify you must email the registration coordinator and request a rollover.
If I am unable to make the race, can I give my entry to a friend?
TRIATHLON & RUNNING: No. If someone else races under your name and is injured, or causes an accident, that person will not be covered by any protection typically afforded to an athlete through the USA Triathlon sanction or running event insurance. Plus, if the athlete racing in your name causes injury or damage, you may be liable in part for those damages.
