The Maple Grove Triathlon abides by official USA Triathlon rules and regulations, the governing body for the sport. All athletes are responsible for adhering to these guidelines to ensure a safe and fair event. We encourage new and seasoned athletes to review the rules in detail. View the USA Triathlon Rules and Policies.
Pay special attention to CPSC-approved helmets and also wetsuit information. According to the established USA Triathlon rules, wetsuits are permitted if the water temperature is 78 degrees or below. If the water temperature is 79-83 degrees, you may wear a wetsuit, but are ineligible for age-group awards. Wetsuits are not permitted if the water temperature is 84 degrees or higher. A dedicated wetsuit wave at the end of each distance will be created.
Event marshals will be posted on each course to enforce participant adherence to all rules and regulations. Any penalties and disqualifications will be posted on the timing board adjacent to the finish line.
