Race Day Schedule

Please join us for the 2021 Crystal River Sprint Triathlon Series.

WHEN REGISTERING FOR THE SERIES, KNOW THAT YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED FOR THE REGISTRATION UNTIL APRIL 1, 2021. 


!!!!!!  Crystal River Sprint Triathlon Race Series has been approved by the County and we are ready and plan on having all three of our races.  However, due to the continuing uncertainty of COVID, this race is using a RESERVED REGISTRATION system for entries.  This means that you will register now to hold your spot and a $0 authorization transaction will be run on your credit card.  You will NOT be charged for the registration until April 1, 2021.  At that time, if we are confident that the races will be moving forward with no cancellation, we will charge your card for the cost of your entry ($210) plus any USAT or service fees that may apply.  DRC Sports feels this is the best practice to ensure athlete peace of mind and wallet.

USAT Event

USAT athletes must provide a valid USAT# and present their USAT card & photo ID at registration. A $50 Annual license can be purchased at www.usatmembership.com (For athletes under 17 years of age, price is $10 for an annual membership) Non-USAT licensed athletes must purchase the $15 one-day license. This is available during on-line registration.

The USAT Age rule requires that all participants race by birth year rather than their age on race day. This means your race age will be the same for all sanctioned events for an entire calendar year. The age group of a participant will be determined by age on Dec. 31 of the event year, not by age on race day. For example: If you turn 25 years old in July, you will race and be ranked in the 25-29 age group for the entire season.
