LICENSING/INSURANCE/RULES: The Breezy Point Triathlon is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event and all USAT rules will be followed and strictly enforced. It is the responsibility of the athlete to be familiar with those rules. No drafting is allowed and will be monitored by roving draft marshals. Helmets must be ANSI/Snell or approved (those manufactured before March 10, 1999) or Comsumer Product Safety Commission apporved (those manufactured after 3/10/1999) and worn AT ALL TIMES while on the bike. Wet suits, aerobars and disk wheels are permitted as per the USA Triathlon rulebook. The complete rulebook can be accessed at www.usatriathlon.org. Since the race is USA Triathlon sanctioned, non-USAT members are required to purchase a one-day event license. This is achieved by including an additional $12 with your entry fee and filling out a USA Triathlon one-day permit form at Packet Pick-up.
