Dear participants of the 15th Annual Broome County Parks Triathlon (Aqua-Bike and Duathlon), we hope
this note finds you and your family safe and healthy.
Please be aware that as of early 2021, our event status is still under consideration.
We have made the difficult decision to cancel the youth portion of our event. The reason is twofold:
There were few registrations, and the youth race brings in many spectators, which is being discouraged
by USA Triathlon. Youth event registrations will be refunded (minus RunSignUp and USA Triathlon fees).
As we all know, COVID-19 has had a huge impact on our lives. It is our hope that measures being taken
by the county, state and federal governments will allow us to proceed with this year’s event.
We have viewed the USA Triathlon document “Return to Racing Recommendations for Race Directors”
and are taking its proposals and instructions into account. (Limited spectators, expanded transition area,
individual bottles for aid stations, online pre-race briefing, etc.)
For now, we think we can safely conduct the race by limiting the number of participants to 100 and
using “wave” starts of 25 to 30 people every 3 to 5 minutes. We will evaluate the possibility of
expanding the field as the event approaches. If registered participants (deferred from 2020) are unable
or unwilling to attend this year’s race on June 26, we will refund your entry (minus RunSignUp and USA
Triathlon fees) until May 25, 2021.
The safety of our participants, volunteers, spectators and staff is our highest priority.
We will be back in touch as soon as we have new information.
Race proceeds will benefit the Broome County Parks Handicapped Playground Fund
Packet pickup will begin at 7:30 at Dorchester Park on race day (6/26/2021).
