CoVid-19: Thinking Long Term

Dear MN Multisport Community,

We all know how important triathlons, duathlons, and other similar physical activities are to our health and wellbeing. Unfortunately, we are all in a state of limbo and uncertainty, with no crystal ball to give us clear answers or much needed comfort.

Numerous event directors recently met (virtually) to discuss the impact CoVid-19 is having on the upcoming racing season. As many groups/activities are already doing, we are monitoring the situation as best we can. We are cautiously optimistic that some events will still occur this season, but obviously cannot, nor should not be making any guarantees. At this point in time, each organizer is still making their individual decisions about their respective event(s). In any case, know that this process is not easy, but will be made with your safety being a priority.

We hope you also realize that for many events, numerous hours and dollars have already been invested into them, well in advance of the actual event. Our goal and vision, just like that of most athletes is to think long term. By doing so, we will be able to continue to put on quality, memorable, and safe events for years to come, as well as all get through this pandemic together (albeit 6 feet apart for the foreseeable future).

Sincerely,

The Race Director and planning committee for:
