One-Day License - $15 (Adult Only)

A One-Day License allows an athlete to compete in a USA Triathlon sanctioned race without purchasing an Annual Membership. A One-Day License provides athletes with excess accident insurance while they are participating in a USA Triathlon sanctioned event.

One-Day Licenses are purchased for a specific race, are transferable, are non-refundable, and are NOT sold directly through USA Triathlon (as they are race specific). If your event is canceled and you need to move your one-day license please contact

Did you know you can apply the cost of a One-Day License towards the purchase of an Annual Membership? Holding a USA Triathlon Annual Membership eliminates the requirement to purchase One-Day Licenses for any USA Triathlon sanctioned event.

How do I purchase a One-Day License?

There are two ways to purchase a One-Day License:
  • Most event registration systems will allow the purchase of a One-Day License while registering for your race.
  • If the option is not available during registration, the race director will have the option to purchase the One-Day License at the race packet pickup.

Why do I have to purchase a One-Day License or Annual Membership for my event?

When a race director sanctions with USA Triathlon, it is required for each participant to purchase either a One-Day License or hold an Annual Membership in order to participate in said event.
