Multisport Events - USA Triathlon Info
Therese Bynum and Faye Yates are USAT Certified Race Directors and maintain their status by getting the required CEU’s annually.
This means they have completed a 16-hour educational training class. This course includes information on the latest in race directing methods, insurance/risk management trends, and USAT sanctioning compliance. This course is not mandatory, but they are mindful of keeping in touch with the latest industry trends that will in turn allow better events to be produced. Athletes should expect more from these race directors and Team Magic.
What this means for you:
Running Events - RRCA Info
Team Magic is a member of the Road Runners Club of America and all running events are covered by RRCA insurance and are USA Track and Field (USATF) certified.
The RRCA is dedicated to supporting the growth of grassroots running clubs, training programs, and running events while promoting the common interests of runners throughout the United States. Being a part of the RRCA is important to Team Magic, especially since we have so many commons goals and values. You can find out more about the RRCA: here.
CX (CycloCross) - USAC
When a race director sanctions a race with USA Cycling, it is required for each participant to purchase either a one-day license, or annual membership in order to participate in the event. The fees from the purchase of the one-day, or annual, go to cover excess medical insurance coverage for you at the event. An annual membership also includes this excess medical coverage, as well as higher categories license fees going to support the Race Clean program.
Each USA Cycling event requires a USA Cycling official to help ensure rules are properly enforced at the event. These rules are intended to provide a level playing field for all athletes participating. Please be sure to look over the rules at USA Cycling.
A confirmation notice is generated at the point of online registration, or when mail-in entries are entered into the event database, and emailed to all entrants that provide a valid e-mail address. Entrants without e-mail access need to request a written confirmation. You can also confirm your race entry online by visiting the "race participant" link on the event web page or on the online registration system.
Race packets will not be mailed in advance of race site registration and packet pick up. An e-mail with final race reminders will be e-mailed the week of each event to all racers with a valid e-mail address. Please be sure your email provider accepts emails from team-magic.com.
