Our event is unique and comes with an equally unique press process. Press passes are reserved for accredited journalists and assigned press photographers. Due to State and City limitations, we must significantly limit the number of photographers at the starting line in order to alleviate congestion and streamline safety measures. Your safety and ours comes first, and therefore space is limited.

All requests for press passes will be screened. Credentials will not be offered to freelance journalists or photographers who are not on assignment for an identified news outlet. Exclusive articles and/or feature stories are strongly recommended. Requests must be received at least two weeks prior to the event to allow time for review. Press credentials cannot be applied for at the event. Please note that our event is not considered news coverage and our event space is closed off to public access. TROG reserves the right to revoke photography privileges in and around the event space at their discretion. Only approved photographers will be allowed to capture content at the event.

Please only submit this request if you have been hired by a news outlet to photograph TROG and can offer supporting documentation. We will review requests in mid-August and reply to you then. If approved, you will need to pick up your credentials at the event. Credentials will not be mailed. We appreciate your continued support and understanding. See you on the beach!
