Gold Nugget Triathlon (“GNT”‘ will be using for registration. It was also used in the 2019 event. Many of you will recognize it as it is also used by many events across the country and in Alaska.

Pre-registration, “PRE-REG”, will be super easy and quick. You do not need a profile for the Pre-Reg phase of registration, however if you would like to, feel free to set one up prior. All you will need to sign anyone up during the PRE-REG phase is their last name, first name, date of birth (DOB’, and you will be asked to approve the waiver. It’s just that easy!

Once you have successfully conquered the PRE-REG phase, and you receive your unique link to register for the second phase, or “FULL-REG” phase, you can build a RunSignUp profile for you or a user under 18-years old at that point. The FULL-REG phase will last for a week so you will have plenty of time to complete your registration. You can be one with your computer and relax!

We strongly encourage you to not wait until the last minute to complete the FULL registration. You never know what could happen that could pull you away from your computer and prevent you from actually completing your registration.

USAT LICENSING FEES: USAT is the sanctioning organization that provides GNT with the insurance needed to put on a race such as this. There are racer fees paid by each racer to participate.

RUN SIGN-UP (the GNT Registrations site’ makes the process transparent, and easier for both racers and the race organizers. They are able to instantly verify membership. Instead of applying a discount to members, non-members have the option to pay the one-day license or register for a full membership at the time of registering.  Current USAT members will simply supply their valid USAT membership number at the time of registration.

You do NOT need to assure your membership is valid during the ‘pre-registration’ phase. You will however, need to a valid membership (and must supply your USAT membership number’ during the ‘full-registration’ phase or be required to pay the one-day license or full year membership at the time of registration.

Again, you will not need your USAT number during the pre-registration phase; however, if you are a current member you MUST have it for the full registration phase or pay the one-day license fee at minimum.  (yep, had to say it twice!!!)
