Hello, friends. After a very challenging 2020, we’re truly grateful for the ability to start the 2021 planning process. Nothing is certain, yet we remain optimistic that we will meet again in-person on Sunday, June 6 at Wolf Lake. Below is our initial plan toward getting there. We have some BIG things planned for 2021 (announcements to come in the next few days) but we’re starting small – very small.
It’s our intention to be fair and transparent to everyone involved during the next few months, and hope you can understand our policies and rationale. As always, we welcome and value your feedback (via email or Facebook) and promise to communicate relevant updates through email, social media and this web site. Here we go…
2021 Registration Details
An initial 2021 registration opportunity will open Friday, February 19 at 12:00 PM CST. The 2021 event is scheduled for Sunday, June 6 in Hammond, Indiana.
Limited Registration Capacity
In anticipation of State of Indiana protocols, we are limiting this initial registration capacity to 250 total participants. Since 125 individuals have been deferred from the 2020 event, the registration system will allow for an additional 125 individuals to register before the system closes. As future Covid-19 restrictions are relaxed, additional slots may be available to the general public and communicated several days in advance of opening.
The endurance industry has shown that producing safe events during the pandemic is possible. Leon’s Triathlon will abide by local, state and federal agency guidelines as well as USA Triathlon Safe Return to Multisport standards. We are prepared to initiate a variety of unique event protocols, including a larger Transition area, low or no-contact packet pick-up process, expanded time trial start schedule, self-service aid stations and pre-packaged athlete food. Exact implications will be shared closer to race weekend.
COVID-19 Cancellation Clause
In the event the 2021 event (scheduled for June 6, 2021) is postponed or cancelled due to continued Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, registrants will have 2 options:
- Receive a 40% refund of your entry fee
- Be automatically deferred to the next scheduled event at no additional cost
Thank you for your understanding and flexibility. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns.
