HUGE Disappointment! Was really looking forward to this. Looks like I may not be doing a Tri this year because of timing. I'm going to end up getting a refund, none of the transfer races fit my goals for the year.
per the email:
The Washington DC Triathlon LLC regretfully announces the cancellation of the June 17 triathlon to be held in Washington DC . The event, which is held on National Park Service property, was recently denied the required Park Service permit for the 2012 race. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Event organizers will work with you by transferring your registration on request to one of six races listed below or provide you a registration refund. Please note that race transfers and refunds are available only until March 28 when registration fees become non-refundable and non-transferrable.
TriRock New York
Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia Half
Rock ‘n’ Roll Providence Half
Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach Half
I transferred to the TriRock Annapolis which I was going to do regardless but still. Grrr!!!
Please see the club's official response to this situation here:
We tried to get this up earlier today before multiple threads began and as the news was becoming public but for various reasons the timing didn't work out.
President, DC Tri
Desperately looking for another triathlon for an entire group of us. We are looking for a triathlon that has both the sprint and international distances held in one day and that also allow relay teams to participate. Anyone know of any?
