Races are rain or shine unless we determine that race conditions are dangerous. If the race is cancelled there will be no refunds. This position is consistent with USAT recommendations and with the protocol of sharing the risks associated with the sport of triathlon. In the event of inclement weather, Acts of God, or unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to alter, cancel or eliminate any/all portions of the race. Each athlete must accept any such risk of their entry fee paid including other amenities paid for such as t-shirts, insurance, and online administrative fees. All fees collected are used to develop and produce the event, including all race supplies. In the event of inclement weather, the following is the Hartwell YMCA Sprint/Olympic Triathlon plan of action.
Thunderstorms / Lightning
Race start may be delayed (up to 30 minutes) until weather conditions are safe. If weather continues, the event will be changed to a duathlon (bike – run format) with a time trial start. No event day transfers will be issued if the event is reformatted due to inclement weather.
Natural disaster (hurricane, tornado)
If the triathlon is cancelled due to natural disaster, every effort will be made to reschedule the event. Registrants will receive a 100% credit to participate in the rescheduled event. If the event cannot be rescheduled later in the year, a 75% credit will be issued for all registered triathlon participants into either another Georgia Endurance Series event or the following years Hartwell YMCA Sprint/Olympic Triathlon.
