Escape the Cape Athletes,

Just a few weeks ago, we were extremely optimistic in allowing those athletes who wanted to jump off the Cape May-Lewes Ferry to do so. However, the athletes have spoken and as much as we would have liked to produce an altered version of the Escape The Cape Triathlon and Open Water Classic we will have to postpone until 2021.
DelMoSports was founded on the ability to listen to our athletes to find out what they wanted and then in turn delivering on that need. In New Jersey, we are allowed to gather in groups of up to 500 persons. Our host, the DRBA runs their ferry with 800+ passengers and a full deck of cars safely every day. We at DelMoSports were 110% confident in our ability to produce a safe, world class event while meeting all NJ State Health guidelines as well as the safety protocols of the DRBA, USAT, and CDC.
However, in these uncertain times, we turned to you for guidance on what you wanted to do. Close to 90% of registered athletes have chosen to not participate in this year's hybrid event. With such a small field, we do not have the numbers to board a single ferry and therefore cannot do our event as planned.
One thing was very clear to us through all of this, there is no possible way to do ETC as a virtual event. We had hoped that if we gave you the opportunity to jump you would have "jumped" at the opportunity, but that just wasn't so. We respect that and we will be back better than ever in 2021.



DEADLINE TO DEFER/TRANSFER Wednesday, August 19 @ 11:59 PM
We thank you for your continued support and hope to see many of you competing in our Virtual Atlantic City Triathlon presented by Inspira Health and our Stampone Law Virtual Tri the Wildwoods presented by Inspira Health.
