Hurricane Irma Update: 9/12

Athletes, Sponsors, Volunteers & Friends –

With the full extent of Hurricane Irma’s damage yet to be identified, we are currently unable to provide a definite answer about the state of our Escape to Miami event on September 24. Over the next few days, we will reopen conversations and gather more facts with local authorities and agencies, when they are available to move beyond emergency response. 

Currently Miami has more urgent priorities than hosting a triathlon, which we fully agree and respect. Residents need to return to their homes. Schools need to reopen. Streets need to be cleaned. Normal life needs to resume. We wish the city the speediest of recoveries and are reaching out to help where we can.    

If the city, the residents, and you (our athletes) determine it to be in the community’s best interest to host the race, we will certainly make it happen. We plan to make a final determination by Friday of this week. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding.

More to come.
