Well, the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry, or get affected by hurricanes named Irene. With the State of Virginia declaring a State of Emergency and the trend towards a more western track for the hurricane the responsible thing to do is postpone the event. As much as we all want to race, we cannot risk high wind and torrential rain putting our athletes at risk both on the course and during their travel to and from the race site. So, the Spotsylvania Sprint Triathlon has been rescheduled for Sunday October 9. If you plan on racing October 9 you don't need to do anything, we will keep you registered. If you cannot make this event on October 9 you can roll your entry into the 2012 Spotsylvania Sprint Triathlon. Please reply to this email address by Friday September 2nd if you plan to take this option. Please note that refunds will not be issued for this event.
