Join us for this great race!
Race your heart out!

Congratulations on registering for the San Diego Triathlon Classic, you're in for a great event! We want to help you be as prepared as possible for the race, so we'll be sending you detailed information about the race in the next few weeks leading up to race day.

In this email, we're discussing the pre-race expo and packet pick-up, in future emails we'll also discuss race morning, the swim course, the bike course, and the run course.


Please note: Our website is mostly operational again, but we're still fixing some parts of it. Please bear with us as we finish repairing it.

Sports & Fitness Expo

You must pick-up your packets, personally, at the pre-race Sports & Fitness Expo on Friday, September 5th, 2014. 


You must pick-up your own race packet and you must show a photo ID to prove you are who you say you are. There are no exceptions to this rule. If you are a USAT member, you must show your valid USAT ID as well. There are no exceptions to this rule. This applies both to pre-race packet pick-up and to VIP packet pick-up on race morning.  


If you cannot pick-up your packet on Friday, you must pay $30 for VIP packet pick-up on race morning. If you have not pre-paid for VIP packet pick-up, you must bring $30 (cash or check, only) with you on race morning. If you arrive at VIP packet pick-up on race morning without the fee in-hand or having pre-paid, you will not be allowed to race.

What to Expect
The San Diego Triathlon Classic pre-race Sports & Fitness Expo takes place at Moment Bicycles in Liberty Station. The expo opens at 2:00 PM and closes at 7:00 PM. Never been to Moment Bicycles before? Find directions here.
Forget something at home? Have some last minute needs before the race? Moment Bicycles is a full-service triathlon and bike retailer, they have everything you could possibly need for race-day. 

Free parking is available throughout Liberty Station. Just park in a nearby lot and walk over to the pre-race expo.

Packet Pick-up

Find Your Bib Number

Packet pick-up will be organized by bib number, make sure to get in the line corresponding to your bib number. You will receive an email, prior to the day of the expo, containing your bib number and other important registration information. If that email doesn't make it to your inbox, don't worry! You'll be able to look-up your bib number at the expo.

Receive Your Packet
You must pick-up your own race packet and you must show a photo ID to prove you are who you say you are. Your family member, friend, or significant other cannot pick-up your packet, even with a letter from you. Blame it on the lawyers, but there are no exceptions to this rule. If you are a USAT member, you must show your valid USAT ID as well. There are no exceptions to this rule. If you cannot show your USAT ID card or online proof of your USAT membership status, you will be responsible for paying a one-day license fee. We'll repeat it once more for good measure: there are NO exceptions to these rules.


Receive Your Wristband

When the volunteers working at registration hand your race packet to you, they will also attach a wristband to your wist.

Do not remove this wristband, you will need it to enter transition on race morning.


Be Prepared

To speed up the registration process, the bib number look-up boards will also tell you if you need to fill-out any waivers or pay any fees. Please fill out your waivers prior to entering the packet pick-up line and present them to the volunteer pulling your packet. If you signed-up online, you will most likely not need to sign any additional waivers. If you owe any fees (such as a USAT one-day licence fee) please visit the "Solutions" tent prior to entering the packet pick-up lines. You'll be sent over there to pay your fees anyway, so there's no sense in waiting in an extra line.


Don't Forget the Rest

After you pick-up your race packet, with your bib numbers, don't forget to pick-up your swim cap, timing chip, t-shirt, and hat.

Sports & Fitness Vendors

We're expecting a great showing of many of the best brands in cycling and triathlon, including Cannondale, Felt, SRAM, Zipp, Zoggs, and Zoot. Be sure to check-out all their great offers at the expo. Find a full list of vendors here.
