RACING ON THE HORIZON?
As we occasionally do, it’s again time to revisit the still-fluid triathlon race calendar. With the velocity of COVID-19 infections showing signs of slowing and the distribution of vaccines improving, we’re hopeful that racing will return soon.
However, based on the most recent cancellations and postponements, we’ll still need to be patient. Challenge Roth was surprisingly moved from July to September, placing it on a collision course with the Hawaii IRONMAN World Championship in securing its elite fields.
As expected IRONMAN 70.3 Oceanside was moved to the fall, further clogging an impossibly full October. IRONMAN continues to struggle with its global events schedule and frustrated customers, while Challenge leads the way with its generous refund policy.
