As part of our continuing commitment to grow the sport of triathlon, Life Time Tri is proud to uphold new event rules through the Officiating Program, introduced in 2018. These rules apply to all triathletes participating in any 2019 Life Time Tri event: able-bodied, para and professional alike.
Like any sport, rules are created to ensure participant safety and fairness in competition. While these remain paramount, this year’s rules will alter some typical competitive standards, as well as modify the way penalties are enforced and assessed in short course triathlon. The new Officiating Program is designed to make the sport simpler, more accessible and more exciting for new and veteran athletes alike.
If you plan to race any 2019 Life Time Tri event, please watch this video for insight into the new event rules. These rules will directly impact all participants, first-timers and veterans alike. You may download the full set of rules below.
