USA Triathlon Announces 2022 State Championships Calendar

November 23, 2021

All 50 states will host State Championship events in 2022, as athletes compete for state titles, All-American Honors and opportunity to qualify for the Toyota USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – USA Triathlon today unveiled the dates and locations for the 2022 State Championships, a robust calendar of local, USA Triathlon sanctioned events in all 50 states that will give athletes around the country the opportunity to race for state titles, earn event All-American Honors and qualify for the Toyota USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships.

“Racing is coming back in a big way in 2022, all across the United States,” said Rocky Harris, USA Triathlon CEO. “Local races in our communities exemplify the spirit and fun of our sport and I encourage all triathletes, from the experienced to the newbie, to race in your State Championship next year. Let’s celebrate another year with races coming back and let’s support our dedicated, local race directors who produce first-class events.”

State Championships are open to all triathletes, as no qualification is required to compete. Most State Championships include a non-drafting Sprint- and Olympic-distance race for age group athletes, as well as a high school championship division in the Sprint-distance race. The top overall male and female athletes and top athletes per age group in the Sprint-, Olympic-distance and high school races will be crowned state champions.

In addition to racing for state titles, athletes racing at State Championships will also have increased odds to qualify for the Toyota USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships, the annual event that requires qualification and brings together the best U.S. age group triathletes in the Sprint- and Olympic-distance. State Championships will qualify the top 35 percent, or top five finishers in their age group (whichever is greater) for the 2022 or 2023 Toyota USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships. Normal qualification criteria is the top two, or 15 percent of an athlete’s age group (whichever is greater). Any high school state championship finisher will automatically qualify for Age Group Nationals Sprint-distance.

State Championships held after June 1, 2022 will qualify athletes for both the 2022 and 2023 Toyota USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships. The 2022 Toyota USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships are scheduled for Aug. 6-7 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
