PACKET PICK UP/REGISTRATION

There is only one  registration site this year.  Packet Pick Up will take place on the night before the race at the finish line, adjacent to Bass Lake Realty.  Registration hours are from 4 to 7.  Limited registration is available race morning, to avoid long lines we encourage you to complete your registration on Friday night.

Friday, June 2, Packet Pick Up:  4:00 - 7:00pm, at the finish line, adjacent to Bass Lake Realty

You may register for the triathlon at Packet Pick Up on June 1, providing the race has not sold out.  There will be no triathlon registration the morning of the race. 5K registration on race morning will be available until 6:55am.

Packet pick up for the triathlon is available on race morning until 6:30am.  Note that packet pickup closes at 6:30am and race numbers will not be available after that time.  If you arrive after 6:30am you run the risk of not being able to race.

All relay members must come to registration for packet pick up. We cannot release the race number for the relay until all relay members have personally checked in. 

Timing chips will be handed out race morning. Chips are to be worn on the left ankle.

If you are an annual member of USA Triathlon, then you must bring your annual membership card and photo ID to registration. We cannot make exceptions to this rule. Please do not ask us to do so.

If you are not an annual member,  USAT charges a one day fee of $15 and requires you to sign a waiver. This fee is paid as part of your registration process. If you signed up via active.com then you will have signed the waiver online. If you mailed the entry in then you will need to sign a waiver at registration.

We had hoped to have a procedure in place where you could pick up the packet of a friend or family member.  Unfortunately USAT has informed us that this is not possible.  Everybody, included each relay member, must personally pick up their packet and race number.  There are no exceptions to this rule.

OPTIONAL BIKE DROP OFF

The transition area will be open for optional bike drop off from 5:00pm - 8:00pm on Friday, June 1.  This is not a mandatory bike drop off.  Security will be present at the transition overnight.

USA TRIATHLON

USA TRIATHLON (USAT) is the national governing body of the sport of triathlon and provides the insurance for the event. We therefore must abide by their registration procedures and competitive rules.

If you are an annual member you must bring your valid membership card as well as a photo ID to pick up your packet. This is required by USAT and we cannot make exceptions.

We follow USAT competitive rules.  Please visit USATriathlon.org for a comprehensive list of competition rules.

PRE-RACE MEETING

The pre-race meeting will take place at 7:00pm on Friday, June 1.

The pre-race meeting will take place at the Finish Line, adjacent to Bass Lake Realty.

Attendance is strongly encouraged but is not mandatory. We will cover last minute information, course details and rules.

RxH2O Structured Spring Water

Every athlete received a bottle of water from our Sponsors RxH2o.  RxH2o begins its journey from the most pristine Natural Spring Water sources available in nature.  Their mineral enriched concentrate is then infused using proprietary technology with the Natural Spring Water creating a negative-ion, pH enhanced ultra-cellular hydrating Structured Spring Water.  Much research has been conducted on the effects of this unique water on the body's response systems.

Our Party and Awards Ceremony is right after the race at the Finish Line.

TEAM DISCOUNT

Are you a member of a triathlon team?  The Bass Lake Yosemite Triathlon is offering a free entry to every team that brings 12 or more entries.  Make sure your team members record their team affiliation when entering online (a question will ask if they are representing a team and, if so, what team).  When your team gets 12 or more entries your team will receive a certificate for a free entry.

CLYDESDALE/ATHENA

The Bass Lake Yosemite Triathlon will be offering Clydesdale/Athena divisions.

LOCAL WEATHER

Average day time temperature in Bass Lake early June is around 80. Due to the low humidity, nights are quite cool, dipping into the 60s. You might even need a sweatshirt at race start!

REFUND POLICY

We understand that plans can change. Unfortunately we are not able to offer any refund, for any reason. We will not transfer your entry to another race nor roll it over to the following year. However, with races selling out, we do not want any individual stuck with an entry they cannot use. Therefore if you notify us prior to April 15th, we will offer a refund of 75% of your entry fee, less any charges incurred by active.com.

If you wish to switch between sprint and Olympic, or vice versa, you may do so at any time prior to June 1st (paying the difference in the entry fee where applicable). Just notify us by email and we will make the change.

T-SHIRT POLICY

We need to order t-shirts 10 days before the event. All athletes will be guaranteed a t-shirt in the size recorded on their entry blank or indicated on Active.com if your entry is received on or before May 24, 2016. Entries received after that date may not receive a shirt.

COURSE POLICY

Tucson Racing reserves the right to postpone, cancel or change the race or race format at any time to ensure athlete safety. If Tucson Racing determines conditions that might compromise the safety of participants, Tucson Racing, in its sole judgment, may cancel, postpone, or change the race and/or race format. No Refunds or Transfers will be given.
