Digital Options

USA Triathlon offers members multiple ways to read USA Triathlon Magazine. With the exception of those who opt out, all members will receive a printed copy of the quarterly magazine via the U.S. Postal Service. In addition, members can view the digital version from a computer or view the iPad/iPhone version by downloading the free app in the iTunes App Store.

In our effort to be environmentally responsible, we offer members the opportunity to opt out of receiving the printed version of the magazine. To opt out and only receive the digital version, please email with the member number, name and email address of the member(s) opting out.


Unsolicited story ideas, articles and photographs are welcome, as are Letters to the Editor.

With some exceptions, USA Triathlon Magazine uses Associated Press style. Submissions should be written using a word processor software program (Microsoft Word is preferred) and emailed as an attachment to the editor-in-chief. Be sure the subject of the email reflects what type of submission is being sent.

Digital photographs should be submitted in the form of original, unedited JPEGs. Suggested captions are welcome. Photographs may be submitted via CD or e-mail. Prints also are accepted and are returned upon request. Photographer credit is published when supplied.
