USA Triathlon Single-Discipline Sanctioning

Want to engage a new audience and grow your business? Add a running event to your current event or as a standalone! USA Triathlon is excited to extend event sanctioning to single-discipline events such as running, cycling or open-water swimming so you can save time and grow your business. This is available for race directors, coaches, and clubs who previously sanction with USA Triathlon. 

Ease and Flexibility

USA Triathlon is a one-stop sanctioning destination for race directors and their events. The days of going to different governing bodies or insurance brokers to receive sanctioning and insurance are over. Your time is valuable – USA Triathlon can manage your sanctioning and give you the hours back to do what you do best: hosting world-class events.

New Ways to Engage Athletes

Hosting single-discipline events alongside your multisport race, or separate standalone single-discipline events, will draw more participants to your events and your brand. Attract swimmers, cyclists and runners, and show them the community and atmosphere you’ve created, or include clinics and training sessions for endurance athletes unfamiliar with multisport. The opportunities to grow your business and event through USA Triathlon’s single-discipline sanctioning are endless.
