COVID-19 has thrown our worlds into chaos. The uncertainty that hangs over our heads each day makes it hard to function. As athletes ourselves, we know that a simple race can mean the world when it comes to restoring normalcy.
With an event like our triathlon, planning starts months ahead of time. In order to be properly prepared for the race in June, we would have to begin now. Without a timeline as to when this virus will release it's grasp on the world, we need to concentrate on today.
Our committee has discussed the situation at length, and it's with heavy hearts that we must announce the cancellation of the 2020 Lincoln Park Triathlon. This decision was not made lightly, but with the safety of all our athletes and volunteers in mind.
We hope you all understand. Please stay safe, wash your hands, and keep those affected by the virus in your thoughts.
-The Lincoln Park Triathlon Committee
