I hope this is OK in the guidelines... had it all typed up and then wondered. I apologize if not. I receive no incentive from it, if that makes a difference, just thought it was a fun idea with so many unable to do life as usual.
My first ever Sprint Tri was scheduled for next month but has been postponed until October (same weekend as my favorite local race). I told my husband that I was going to try and do the bike/run legs of the race to at least say I did that... then this came through my email. Not a great source of info, but that’s where the link takes me.https://endurancecui.active.com/new/events/68521353/select-race?rcid=1551ABC8-69E9-4181-BB03-6E74CA08B87B&mrrId=438f55eb-c9ae-442a-b7d9-470b1ac77d74
Copy and pasting the email text as well for more info. I am doing it for the “novelty” of it, to have a unique record of the mark on history that this pandemic will have.
