Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and without any clear guidelines from the Government regarding the operation of mass participation events we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the already rescheduled Southport Triathlon for 2020.
We have been working hard in recent weeks monitoring the situation by constantly reviewing the ever changing government legislation and guidance, as well as the subsequent advice from British Triathlon but we have now reached the stage where the Government stance has not allowed British Triathlon to permit any events until after 14th July, at least. And with no clear date available for when this may change we find ourselves unable to commit to the event on the rescheduled date of August 2nd.
All registered participants for the August 2020 event will automatically be transferred to the May 2021 event which will retain GB Age Group Qualifier Status. Alternatively, if you wish to request a transfer to an alternative Epic Event or a credit that can be used towards an entry in any of our 2020 or 2021 events, (which can also be transferred to another person if you wish) please email firstname.lastname@example.org and state your name and the event name as Southport Triathlon 2020.
We would like to thank you for your continued support at this difficult time.
Regards and stay safe
