There are no separate categories for athletes with disabilities, but all athletes, regardless of ability/disability are welcome to register and participate at The TriFactory events.

In the event that a friend or family member will be present to support a disabled athlete, please let us know in order to provide them with an access pass.

Typically, we only enforce cut-off times for our longer distances.

  • At the Somabay Endurance Festival, cut-off times are only enforced for the Olympic distance.

Make sure to read the cut-off time information in detail before signing up for a race.
