USA Triathlon Sanctioned Race

Race organizers for the CAT Race are happy that the USA Triathlon has sanctioned this inaugural race. The USAT mission is to encourage, support and enhance the multisport experience in the United States. Delaware County event organizers are hoping to tap into the 130,000 members of USAT to generate interest as well as provide confidence in racers from the local area.

Mark Hughes, Owner of Fast Finishes, who is providing the timing support for the race, is looking forward to a challenging day for racers. “We're very happy that this is a USA Triathlon sanctioned race. Sanctioning sets a high standard for the event. It will be a fair event raced under the rules of the sport. Drafting is not allowed on the bike, as per triathlon rules. It's a fast, competitive course. The run is flat and fast and the reservoir is smooth and ready for some fast paddling. The bike has some hills and will challenge you all the way to the finish.”
