Description

CHECK OUT THIS FANTASTIC VIDEO HIGHLIGHTING THE LAKE LOGAN MULTI-SPORT FESTIVAL BY CLICKING HERE

Welcome to the Lake Logan Multisport Festival and beautiful Lake Logan. Athletes from across the country have been coming here since 2006 and found the perfect combination of beautiful scenery, fast courses, cool temperatures and amazing volunteers. It is no wonder so many of them come back year after year.

Aquathon - Lake Logan may be the most beautiful multisport venue in the country and a perfect choice to once again the sport's national championship. The 1500 meter swim in this pristine mountain lake has a unique course starting near the main docks but finishing under the highway bridge in the mouth of the river. The 5K-run course is an out-and-back along a two-lane, tree canopied road along the river. It has a 1-2% grade on the outbound leg, almost guaranteeing a negative split on the downhill inbound leg.

USAT Information

USAT INFORMATION:

ALL USAT members must show proof of a current membership at packet pick up. If you have recently renewed a membership, then you MUST print out a temporary card or receipt of payment (that shows length of the membership period) to show at packet pick up. We will not take your word for it that your membership is current; you must SHOW us. Failure to do so will result in having to pay the one-day fee of $12.

CLICK HERE to be taken to the USAT website where you can renew your membership or print out a temporary card. You can also renew your membership at packet pick up if that's easier for you.

If I entered my USAT information when I registered, then why do I need to show my card at packet pick up? USAT rules state that all USAT members must show a valid membership card at packet pick up and failure to do so will result in having to pay the 1-day fee. Our events are sanction by USAT, therefore, we must follow these rules. Our website is not connected to USAT's website, so the information that you enter when you register could be incorrect. We must physically document the current expiration date of your membership when you pick up your packet as this is the only way we can confirm 100% that your membership is in fact current.

USAT's "Age Up" Policy:

An athlete's age for any USAT sanctioned race will be his/her age as of Dec. 31, 2013. The age he/she is on 12/31 will determine his/her racing age group. If an athlete is due to "age-up" into the next group, it will happen at the beginning of the year, not after the athlete's birthday. This action aligns regular U.S. age group racing with the method used by USA Triathlon for its National Rankings Program and its new Grand Prix Series.

Example: John Smith is 39 and will turn 40 on November 20, 2013.

John will be considered 40 for all 2012 races - and will race in the 40-44 age group at all 2013 races.

Sally Jones is 29 and will turn 30 on July 3, 2013.
Sally will be considered 30 for all 2012 races - and will race in the 30-34 age group at all 2013 races.

This same policy applies to the all race categories in the TrySports Triathlon Series races (Open, Clydesdale, etc).

Example: Fred Peters is 39 and will turn 40 on August 15, 2013.
Fred has registered to race in the "Open" category.
Since Fred will turn 40 in 2013 and will be considered 40 in all 2013 races, Fred will automatically be switched into the "Masters Open" category.

Award Categories
