Date Change! August 29, 2021

New Date: August 29, 2021

Athletes-

 

Due to our current situation surrounding the COVID 19 pandemic, we are respectfully informing you of the following change:
 
The Escape the Cape Triathlon presented by Inspira Health will move to Sunday, August 29

We believe this is the right call for our communities, athletes, staff, and volunteers. We are confident in the down-trending numbers of new cases as well as the increased number of vaccinations on a daily basis. Furthermore, as the weather begins to break and more people spend time outdoors, our number of positive cases will continue to fall. This is all very positive, and we are extremely confident in safely producing ETC in 2021 in which our communities and athletes will feel confident and safe.
 
Why are we changing the date to late August?  


Our goal is to race in the summer of 2021. ETC has a finite amount of room on the boat; Moving ETC to August was the logical decision and the stakeholders in both communities agreed this was a prudent, yet safe call. Athletes safety has always been priority #1 and this change reflects our commitment to you.

Description

The Escape the Cape Triathlon Presented by Inspira Health was voted the BEST TRIATHLON in the Mid-Atlantic & North East Regions.
