| SUBARU SERIES UPDATE – June 4th, 2020
We hope everyone is keeping well with the ongoing uncertainty and challenges we are all facing due to Covid-19. There is no guide or playbook when it comes to dealing with situations such as this and we are all learning and doing our best to make the right decisions as we move to get through this pandemic.
Today, we make another difficult announcement. The Niagara Triathlon, originally scheduled for July 26th has been cancelled. We continue to monitor government physical distancing guidelines and health regulations as we assess the viability of hosting an event. We will aim to make cancellation decisions approximately 8 weeks prior to our events. Those registered for Niagara will have the following options available to them:
• Athletes can transfer, free of charge to any Subaru Triathlon Series event later in the 2020 season (given those events occur)
• Athletes can defer 100% of their race entry to the same event in 2021
We realize this cancellation only leaves the potential for 2 remaining Subaru Series races in 2020. Originally we had hoped to have a clearer picture of how the summer would play out by June 1st and send emails to those athletes in affected races so far. Once we have a final decision on Guelph Lake 1 (new date on August 15th/16th) and Owen Sound (September 13th), we will email everyone directly with their options. We ask that you do not contact us at this time with your decision.
We continue to thank everyone for their patience and understanding.
All the best.
Nick Stoehr, Dave Mucyk and the rest of the Trisport team
