Annie Oakley Buffalo Bill Triathlon 2020 covid-19 Cancellation

New Date: 06-26-2021

It is with great disappointment that we must announce that the 2020 Annie Oakley Buffalo Bill Wild West Triathlons will be canceled.

Unfortunately, due to the advance planning that is required for triathlon sports events, we cannot offer any refunds. All participants that have signed up for the event will automatically be deferred to the 2021 date of June 26, 2021.

Local Officials would not approve our submitted covid-19 Triathlon Plan for June 26, 2020 race since there would be more than 50 people on-site, which is more than is recommended at this time.  We respect their decision and appreciate the leadership that they have provided us during these very unusual and trying times.

We look forward to seeing you in 2021.
