I have never competed in Draft-Legal event. Do I need a special licence? can I compete and what exactly does Draft legal mean?

Yes you can compete in the Age Group Sprint Distance Triathlon without having done one before, but we highly recommend that you train with groups in advance to prepare yourself as best you can to take advantage of the fun and exciting way of racing.   Draft Legal means that athletes are allowed to cycle in a pack or ride closely behind another competitor.  Youth and Junior athletes required Draft Certification and although this is not required of adults, it would be an excellent opportunity to learn for all ages!  Draft legal events require road geometry bikes and more information can be found under the Sprint Distance event link:
