 New Orleans athletes who were registered for the 2017 Santa Rosa Island Triathlon will get their swag bag, headsweats visor and dry fit race shirt with picture ID. You CAN pick up another athlete’s packet – we will annotate, by name, that you received it for them. Family members and/or friends can pick up for athletes as well.

Bicycle Course Requirements For All Athletes

The Santa Rosa Island Triathlon is a USA Triathlon-sanctioned event and is governed by the USAT Competitive Rules. These rules mandate that all cyclists ride on the far right of all roads on the bicycle course. You MUST ride single-file and you must maintain a distance of 23 feet (or more) between you and other cyclists.

Passing must be accomplished quickly and can only be done on the left-hand side of the bicycle being passed. There can be no passing on the right of another cyclist. There can be no riding abreast. There can be no drafting. There are penalties for violations of these rules, but much more importantly, safety on the roads must be a priority. Have a great race and be safe!!



Thanks To The United States Marines

Every year we request manpower support from the Marine Corps Aviation Training Support Group (MATSG) at the Pensacola Naval Air Station for the events we put on in the Northwest Florida area. They always respond in force with energy and enthusiasm and help to make our events successful. Here is a picture of the fine young people who worked with us last year to make the 2012 SRITRI a tremendous success. Thanks very much Marines, we appreciate it!
