Duxbury Beach Triathlon • Saturday, Sept. 18, 2021 • Time TBD
To all past and future Duxbury Beach Triathletes,
As of this writing, February 22, we do not know if the 2021 Duxbury Beach Triathlon will take place. We have requested that the date of Saturday, September 18 be secured in the likelihood we can in fact host the triathlon. State and local officials will determine at a later date whether we can hold this event. We are optimistic that the health crisis COVID19 will be dissipating and nearly non-existent in the near future.
Should circumstances regarding the pandemic improve into the spring as anticipated and holding a triathlon in September looks promising, we will then consider opening registration as quickly as possible. We will also clearly and with total transparency provide our refund and cancellation policy.
With that, we would consider it incredibly irresponsible and even blatantly greedy for us (or any RD) to be accepting entries into an event that isn't at least 90% likely to take place, especially after what ALL RD's endured in 2020.
For now, be safe, train positively and we hope to see YOU on September 18 in Duxbury!
