2020 Cayuga Lake Triathlon Cancelled

Dear CLT Athletes, 

I am very sad to announce that we are cancelling what would have been the 18th consecutive running of the Cayuga Lake Triathlon. Like many of you, we were holding out hope that we could safely offer you a race, a race that was up to the standards for which you know and love our event. However, after much deliberation and consideration our crew has decided to cancel. As you can imagine, this decision was extremely hard and disappointing for us, but we ultimately made it out of concern for the health and safety of our athletes and volunteers, and the very real concern that we would not be able to operate with the level of safety and professionalism we pride ourselves for. Moreover, we are a not-for-profit, all volunteer crew, and our organization could not sustain the financial loss that operating not at full capacity would cause. 

We are offering either deferrals to 2021 or full refunds (minus the RunSignUp processing fee). Please look for an email shortly with further instructions as to how to proceed. 

We hope to return next year stronger than ever and we hope you will join us. 

Be well, 
Alex Kleinerman 
USAT Certified Race Director 

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the 2021 race, and look forward to having you join us. 

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon. Please know that we are a not-for-profit 501c-3, so your donation is tax deductible . 

We very much understand. We hope you can join us next time.


18th Annual Cayuga Lake Triathlon
