An Important Message From Somersault Events About COVID-19
As the COVID-19 situation and directives from our governments and public health agencies continue to evolve quickly, we have decided to pause new registrations for Somersault’s first three multi-sport events this season which include The Early Bird Tri/Du and Run, The Britannia Park Tri/Du and Run, and the Smiths Falls Classic Tri/Du and Run.
What does this mean?
Working with our event partners and in cooperation with Sportstats, we will be hosting these first three events virtually. We anticipate that in the coming weeks, Sportstats will have their virtual race platform fully running (yes…… “running”) so that you can too! So keep training as you are able! We will be emailing you with more details about how you can swim (although we may adapt those registered in the triathlon, to do a duathlon instead), bike, and run and then download your results to share.
We will also offer a virtual finish line so you still have those bragging rights! We will update you once we have the full virtual platform from Sportstats. We are taking things one event at a time!
Please know that any donations you have made to the supporting charities of these three events will be paid out, in full and directly to the charities. These charities continue to provide essential services and much needed support to our community in this time of crisis, and they need our support more than ever.
The Somersault Event Series is the pre-eminent event series in Eastern Canada consisting of triathlon, duathlon, and running events for all ages and abilities.
