Do we have to sanction our club events with USA Triathlon?

It is not required to sanction your club events with USAT so long as your club events are not races.  If your club event is a race, even if it is only club members the risk can be the same as the risk at non club sponsored events. By sanctioning your event, the event will be covered under the sanctioned event insurance policy. For information on sanctioning, please email Sanctioning.
