USAT Rules for Packet Pick-Up:

ALL athletes are required to show photo ID. NO ID, NO RACE, NO EXCEPTIONS.  Every single participant in your race must have a photo ID, this includes all relay participants. Youth athletes without an ID must be accompanied by a parent/guardian with a photo ID.  Annual members are required to bring their membership card every time they compete in a USAT sanctioned event. If their card has been lost, they can download and print out a temporary one by logging into their membership account.

Important things to remember during packet pickup:
1.    Below is a breakdown of all membership fees:

  • Adult Annual Membership – $50
  • Adult One-day Membership – $15
  • Youth (age 17 and under) Annual Membership – $10

2.    Athletes may only pick up their own packets. Under no circumstances may an athlete pick up a packet for another person. All relay members must be present to receive the packet, or split up the relay packet for each participant.

3.    If an athlete does not bring a photo ID to packet pickup they have two options:

  • Go home to get it
  • Have someone fax them a copy of their photo ID

4.    If an athlete does not bring their USAT membership card to packet pickup they have four options*:

  • Go home to get it
  • Find Internet access where a temporary card can be printed
  • Pull it up on their smart phone (click for link)
  • Purchase a one-day membership for $15 which can later be applied to a membership renewal by submitting a receipt of purchase

*Not applicable to events who have used Real-Time Account Validation (RTAV) registration platforms

5.    Athletes that need to purchase a one-day membership must sign the USAT waiver if it was not included on the event registration form or process.  Annual members do not have to sign a waiver at packet pickup because they already signed it when they applied to become an annual member.
