Update: Racer instructions sent.
The water temperature is currently 53 deg. Due to this and the cold forecast this week, next 3 nights in the mid-high 30's, the swim portion is off. FXCM made this call today. Their USMS insurance may not cover them if something bad were to happen if it's found that due diligence was not exercised. No one wants to see any ambulances at any race let alone a fun Training Tri.
Instead of the swim, we're going to have a 1.3 mile run instead starting from the water exit. All else will be the same.
We are very sorry for this. Mother nature has not been playing nicely.
We hope you still come out and enjoy the venue and hopefully, nice weather.
For all registrants, we will email out a $10 discount code good towards any
future club race this year.
More info and details will be posted and sent to all registrants and volunteers soon.
For the 2014 ITU Chicago Triathlon, we secured a deal with USA Triathlon to take our bikes from Washington DC to Chicago and back.
