We wanted nothing more than to welcome you to Frankfort this fall for the Tri Up North Triathlon on September 12th. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with a heavy heart that we announce that this year’s event is cancelled.
While our region, along with many others, has come together to flatten the curve, it is clear that social distancing precautions are expected to be in place for some time. We have considered several alternatives, including moving the date and hosting a virtual event. However, given the deep roots this event has in bringing together the community, we do not feel like a virtual event will maintain that spirit in the same way.

The 2020 Tri Up North Triathlon is cancelled due to COVID-19. We look forward to welcoming you back in 2021.
