We are excited to announce that Tritonman will once again be hosting a Draft Legal race! On Saturday, February 16, 2019 this fun style of racing will be brought back to San Diego and give racers a chance to compete in DL before Nationals! Note that age-groupers, collegiate athletes, and elite athletes will all be competing against each other--be prepared for a fast race! Each wave will be capped at 75 entrants. 

In general, we will strive to follow the draft legal EDR rules: please read over the Draft Legal Rules before coming to our race. 

Who can enter
    • Collegiate triathletes with extensive prior racing experience. You do not need to have competed in a draft-legal race before, but if this is the case, be sure to familiarize yourself with the rules beforehand. 
    • Age-group athletes may also enter this race, provided they have extensive racing experience. 
    • Professional triathletes are encouraged to sign up, and best of all, entry for you all is free!
    • The field will be highly competitive. We'll post the list of registered athletes at the bottom of this page a few months before the race, and will update it weekly
How to Register
  • Collegiate athletes: we'll initially hold spots for each collegiate team for 2 men and 2 women in our draft-legal race. We want all teams to have a chance to score points in the WCCTC omnium, so we'll keep a few spots in reserve until Feb 1st to make sure all teams can enter. After Feb first, collegiate teams can request more spots until the race is full, with priority given to WCCTC teams. Coaches, please email race@ucsdtriathlon.org in order to get a registration link for your athletes. Collegiate athletes do not need to be pre-approved by our race committee -- we trust coaches to select athletes with sufficient race experience.
  • Age-group athletes may also enter this race, provided they have extensive racing experience, including draft-legal races. Please email us at race@ucsdtriathlon.org detailing your previous racing experience.
  • Professional triathletes are encouraged to sign up, and best of all, entry for you all is free! Please email us in order to get your discount code and a link for registration.
