Race Converted to Virtual for 2020

Update:  July 14, 2020

We have been forced to make the difficult decision to turn the 2020 Ozark Valley Triathlon to a virtual race and reschedule the in-person date to June 6, 2021.  As recently as this weekend, we were very hopeful that the OVT was going to be our first in-person event of the year, but the conditions of COVID-19 in NW Arkansas combined with event restrictions to hold the race are just not possible for our athletes, our community, volunteers, staff and sponsors.

We are extremely grateful to the Arkansas Health Department and the U.S. Forest Service for their willingness to find a path forward.  Both agencies had developed plans to allow us to have the event, but to hold a triathlon at the Lake Wedington Recreation Area with the necessary protocols would not have been possible for the safety and welfare of all concerned. Unfortunately, postponement is not a viable option based on permitting and venue availability.  

As a small business, All Sports Productions, relies on income from athlete registrations and sponsorship to host our events safely and effectively. When we are forced to cancel an event for reasons outside of our control, we regret that we are unable to offer refunds on race entry fees. However, an athlete has several options...roll their entry to the virtual event which will be held from August 2 to September 2 (Virtual Event Info), roll to next year’s in-person race on June 6, 2021 or apply to another event of our choice.  If you purchased a USA Triathlon one-day license when you registered for this race, USA Triathlon will transfer your one-day license to another event of your choosing later in 2020 or in 2021.  We will contact USAT on your behalf and they will communicate directly with you. 

Canceling events is never an easy decision to make, and we know that this news is disappointing to all of you, just as it is disappointing to us. We understand the hours you have dedicated to training for this race, so please know that this cancelation was made with the safety of the entire community in mind, including NW Arkansas’s most vulnerable. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding during this unprecedented time. 

Thank you for your support of All Sports Productions. Our local multisport community means the world to us, and we hope to make it up to you by continuing to host exceptional events in the future when it is safe and prudent to do so.
