Montrose Triathlon: Event Cancelled
Following the announcement from British Triathlon and Triathlon Scotland yesterday, it is with regret that we must now cancel the 2020 Montrose Triathlon.
I will start the process of refunding all entry fees tonight, however I am anticipating this process will take a week to complete. I would be grateful for your patience while I work through this. Participants will receive a full refund, including any donation they made to our charity partner Tayside Mountain Rescue.
I am very aware that our event participants make a significant donation towards Tayside Mountain Rescue’s ongoing costs each year and, like many organisations, their fundraising plans will have been severely hit with the current restrictions. If you are in a position to support the Team I know they would be very grateful. You can make a donation via their website – https://www.taysidemrt.org/donate/. No one in the Team gets paid to do the job, they all do it because they choose to. They can’t however do their job without the tools and equipment needed to save lives (and to protect their own lives whilst out on a rescue) which is why they need to fundraise all year round.
At this stage the Forfar Triathlon is still going ahead however we will continue to monitor the situation and listen to advice.
If you have any questions about either event please do not hesitate to get in touch. I will copy below the link to the statement from Triathlon Scotland.
