Victoria Half and Sprint Triathlon Race Update – 3 months to go

April 18, 2021

 

We are 3 months away from the Victoria Half and Sprint Triathlon. 

We remain optimists and have continued to work hard and plan for the event taking place on July 18th.  We have applied for all of the permits, announced the race courses, developed strong COVID-19 Guidelines, and the amazing tech shirts and hoodies have arrived!

 

We want to keep good lines of communication open with the participants and everyone involved.

 

It was hard to imagine last fall when we started planning for the event, that in April we would now be seeing record infection rates in British Columbia, the spread of more contagious virus variants, and a slow vaccine roll-out.  Because it is such a rapidly changing situation, and we have experienced other countries in the world now successfully bringing back outdoor sporting events, we will continue to plan for the best-case scenario.  Our COVID-19 Safety Plan/Guidelines will include a smaller event, spaced starts and distancing at all times, reduced touch-points, and many other safe practices.  We will also include a mandatory proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test (more coming on this soon).

 

Our message to you is … Keep training, stick to your goals and stay fit!

This is very important regardless of what the next 3 months shall bring for the event.

 

We will connect with you again in 30 days (2 months prior to the event) with an update.  This could be the time to make a decision on the status of the event so please look for that communication at this time.

 

And please like our page on Facebook for updates as well.

 

Thanks,

Victoria Half and Sprint Triathlon
