USA Triathlon reserves the right to, and may conduct, a voluntary background check on potential winners, and such individual agrees to cooperate, to confirm eligibility and to help ensure that awarding a prize to any such individual will not bring the Promotion Entities into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule or reflect unfavorably on USA Triathlon, its brands, products and services, this Promotion or the Promotion Entities as determined by USA Triathlon in its sole discretion. A potential winner who refuses or fails (in USA Triathlon’s sole and absolute discretion) the voluntary background check will forfeit the potential prize. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance, prize will be awarded assuming sufficient eligible Entries are received. In the event of forfeiture, prizes may NOT be awarded to alternate potential prize winners.
