Dear Racers and Triathletes,
First off, we at triMichiana hope that you and your family are staying safe during this time. While we have all been affected by COVID-19, some individuals have felt the impact more than others. We consider each of you to be a part of our racing family and want you to know that we are sending our prayers and best wishes during this time.
It is with much sadness that we are announcing the cancelation of the 2020 Ideal Beach Triathlon. Don’t fret – we will be back in action for this event in June of 2021!
We considered many factors before making this decision. As most of you know, race planning begins many months before the day of the event. With vendors shut down and state travel restrictions still being reviewed, we cannot in good conscience make the promise of a safe, quality event.
We want to extend a huge thank you to each of you for faithfully participating in our events and supporting health and wellness within our community.
Participants already registered for the 2020 Race: We will begin processing refunds on May 15, 2020. If you would like to defer your registration to 2021, transfer your registration to a race later in the year, or donate your entry fee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org before May 14. All registered participants that have not arranged for a deferral, transfer, or a donation by May 14 will receive a refund of their registration fee.
