Most Commonly Violated USAT Rules:
USAT's "Age Up" Policy:
An athlete's age for any USAT sanctioned race will be his/her age as of Dec. 31, 2024. The age he/she is on 12/31 will determine his/her racing age group. If an athlete is due to "age-up" into the next group, it will happen at the beginning of the year, not after the athlete's birthday. This action aligns regular U.S. age group racing with the method used by USA Triathlon for its National Rankings Program.
John Smith is 39 and will turn 40 on November 20, 2024. John will be considered 40 for all 2024 races - and will race in the 40-44 age group at all 2024 races.
Sally Jones is 29 and will turn 30 on July 3, 2024. Sally will be considered 30 for all 2024 races - and will race in the 30-34 age group at all 2024 races.
