Saturday September 12th, 2020 - CANCELLED
Dear Harvest Moon Triathletes,
This isn’t the first tough news we’ve had to share as many of you know - but it may be the toughest yet, as the doors have officially closed on our triathlon season. A few weeks ago, we all experienced the joy of resuming our Thursday night Stroke & Strides, which offered a glimmer of hope for our final two September triathlons. Unfortunately, Stroke & Stride was only able to resume under Phase II “Safer at Home”, and for the Harvest Moon Triathlon to safely take place, we needed Boulder County to apply for Phase III “Protect our Neighbors”. At this current time, Boulder County still does not qualify to apply for Phase III. As some of you have also seen, due to Phase II not offering the ability for special events, a construction repair project on the Boulder Reservoir Dam has been moved up to early September.
Since early March, your never-ending support drove our team as we worked alongside all permitting and health departments for solutions and options. I’m sorry the outcome wasn’t what we all hoped for or ever could have imagined six months ago, but our work doesn’t stop here. We’ll continue to deliver three more safe and responsible Stroke & Stride events (August 13th, 20th, and 27th), while also getting an early start to make 2021 the most special season yet. What happens to all those positive emails and social media posts we’ve received from athletes and sponsors? We save them and will use them as fuel to keep our creative drive and passion going during the upcoming winter months. Don’t lose hope, not ever, that a brighter future awaits us.
All registered athletes for the Harvest Moon Triathlon will be receiving a special instruction e-mail.
