Before you go..
A robust calendar of local, USA Triathlon sanctioned events that give adult and high school athletes around the country the opportunity to race for state titles and qualify for USA Triathlon Nationals.
State Championships are open to all triathletes, as no qualification is required to compete.
State Championships include a non-drafting Sprint- and Olympic-distance race for age group athletes, as well as a High School State Championship division in the Sprint-distance race.
High school athletes — experienced and newcomers alike — and high school triathlon clubs are encouraged to race their High School State Championship. All high school athletes who finish a High School State Championship race will automatically qualify for the Sprint-Distance National Championships at USA Triathlon Nationals, scheduled Aug. 4-6 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
New for 2023, all state championships will also serve as the Club State Championships for age group and high school clubs.
Adult athletes racing at State Championships have increased odds to qualify for Sprint- and Olympic-Distance National Championships at USA Triathlon Nationals.
State Championships qualify the top 35 percent, or top five finishers in each age group (whichever is greater) for the 2023 or 2024 Sprint and Olympic-Distance Nationals.
