+ Questions Concerning Transgender Policy
Girls Gone Rx is committed to ensuring that transgender athletes understand their opportunity to participate in all Girls Gone Rx events under this policy. Any athlete with questions or concerns about this policy should contact us. All athletes may select their gender. Athletes who register in a gender category other than the gender assigned to them at birth, or different than the gender by which they have identified on the registration website, are representing to Girls Gone Rx that:
- Their gender in their everyday life matches their registration gender.
- They have obtained civil documents with their registration gender identified. (e.g., state ID or driver’s license).
Athletes who cannot meet the criteria above may provide medical or other evidence satisfactory to Girls Gone Rx establishing that they self-identify as the gender stated in their registration.
Transgender females: Athletes who transition from male to female must satisfy the requirements set forth and meet the following requirements:
Athletes must demonstrate that their total testosterone level in serum has been below 10 nmol/L for at least 12 months prior to their first Girls Gone Rx competition (with the requirement for any longer period to be based on a confidential case-by-case evaluation by Girls Gone Rx, considering whether or not 12 months is a sufficient length of time to minimize any advantage in women’s only competition).
The athlete’s total testosterone level must remain below the 10 nmol/L throughout the period of desired eligibility to compete in the female category.
The information provided by the athlete in above will be reviewed by Girls Gone Rx, which shall determine, in its sole discretion, whether the athlete will be allowed to participate as a female.
Compliance with these requirements may be monitored by Girls Gone Rx through additional serum testing. In the event of non-compliance, the athlete’s eligibility for female competition will be suspended for 12 months. An in-competition report of a serum total testosterone level ≥ 10 nmol/L will, subject to section 6.04, result in the disqualification of the results of that competition and the return of any prize money or awards.
Any athlete registered for a Girls Gone Rx event may challenge the gender classification of an athlete by sending a confidential written request to Girls Gone Rx. That request will be reviewed by Girls Gone Rx in such a manner as it deems appropriate. In the interest of confidentiality, the receipt of the challenge will be acknowledged, but no further information will be provided to the challenging party. Girls Gone Rx may also conduct a review and evaluation of an athlete’s gender classification on its own initiative. Except for the transgender athlete’s right appeal, no other athlete or person shall have any standing to challenge a decision of Girls Gone Rx.
