Due to continued restrictions throughout the state, caused by the current pandemic, we are postponing this event (originally scheduled for May 16th) to August 1st. If you are already registered and need to switch to the virtual option because you cannot attend the new date, please let us know so we can transfer you over as soon as possible. Virtual participants will still receive a race shirt and medal mailed to them. Due to the complications with mailing the finisher's mason jars, we will not mail those out, but will make them available for pick up for virtual participants. All virtual packets will be available after August 1st. 

We're looking forward to seeing you in August for an amazing event! 

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date, August 1st, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions.

Important Message Regarding COVID-19 (novel coronavirus)
We at Trivium Racing are still working hard to make sure we have a great event for you in August. While planning continues, athletes should be aware that the potential for cancellation or postponement still exists due to Covid-19. There are also certain modifications that may be made to mitigate the health risks posed by large group events if the event does go forward. We may be in unfamiliar territory, but trust that we will do everything we can to have a safe and fun event as promised. Please make sure you are aware of our refund policy prior to signing up. We hope to see everyone on August 1st, 2020!
