Thanks for your interest in participating in the 2020 DAM TRI & DU!!
Note Published on September 7, 2020
We hope this email finds you healthy and making the most of your summer months. Unfortunately, this email is another punch in the gut for all of us athletes. Another race struck from the race calendar.
With Massachusetts rolling back the outdoor size gatherings, and triathlon falling into the road race category, which is set for Phase IV, we have no choice but to cancel the 2020 Dam Triathlon and Duathlon.
With that said, please save the date for next year, Sunday, July 11, 2021. With respect to your registration, we are deferring everyone, so you will automatically be placed into the 2021 event. No action is needed on your end unless you are inclined to defer to 2022 or 2023, which we’ll happily accommodate. If you know that you will not compete in 2021, please email Ashley at firstname.lastname@example.org
If things change over the course of 2021, you can always defer at a later date as well.
One Day USAT Memberships
We've been working hand and hand with USAT and very happy to report that USAT will be transferring your one-day membership to the 2021 event. The memberships will simply be moved with the sanction application in their system to next year’s event.
We hope you continue to enjoy what is left of summer and we wish you a wonderful Fall. If you are looking to participate in any Fall virtual events be sure to visit our webpage for a list of events.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us.
Sending you a Virtual High5!
Ashley, Caren & the High5EM Squad
