Opportunities, as you will see in the Request for Proposal, include relaxed social sessions called Tri Night Out, clinics, women-only waves at existing sanctioned races and entirely new women-only races.

Athlete Safety 

USA Triathlon views the safety of our members as a core imperative. Event-related fatalities have captured the attention of our community, raising safety concerns among athletes, family members and other supporters, event organizers, sponsors, community leaders, and the medical community. We have conducted a careful review of the collective experience with fatalities at USA Triathlon-sanctioned events from 2003 through 2011. Our objectives were to attempt to bring clarity, identify potential patterns and underlying causes, and investigate opportunities to make any future improvements in event safety.
