2020 Race Cancelled

Hello triathletes!

As much as we would love to host Tri the Illini, there are too many uncertainties for us to SAFELY host the event. Though we know many were excited for this race, we decided to cancel the event out of the concern for the safety of event participants, volunteers, event staff, and spectators.

For those who have signed up: You will be refunded. 

For those who signed up for a one day membership: USAT will be sending an email regarding their policies about one-day memberships that were purchased. 

If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. Thank you for your patience and understanding— see you all next year!
