We hope this message finds each of your safe and well. It is with very heavy hearts that we announce that the 2020 Buckner Mission Man Triathlon has been cancelled.
All of us at Front Street United Methodist Church (owner of Buckner Mission Man Triathlon) hoped that we could safely host the event on July 25th. However, after much deliberation, review of alternate dates, and many other factors, we believe the health and well-being of our participants, volunteers, medical staff, race organizers, and city staff are our highest priority.
As for our plan moving forward, our team is working through what this means for our 2020 participants, sponsors, and volunteers. For participants, we will be in touch with additional details. We understand there will be many questions so will do our best to respond to emails as promptly as possible.
This pandemic has been hard on our community, country, and the entire world but remember we will come through this together. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7
Premier Sprint Triathlon in the Triad!
Moving into its 17th year, with returning naming sponsor, Buckner Heavylift Cranes, this race has become one of the area’s most popular events with a rock-solid purpose. The race raises funds for local, International, and relief missions! Bucker Mission Man Triathlon is centrally located in Burlington, NC for easy access and short travel time from almost any spot in the Triad. Not only that, but the event venue itself is one not to miss! Nestled in Lake Cammack Park and Marina, this event offers participants and spectators beautiful views of nature and fresh air! The lake usually does not allow swimming so is in pristine condition, the bike ride offers views through the country and the run is a double loop in rustic woods. The course, charity purpose, post-race food and volunteers make for a race that you can’t miss!
