This page will keep you, our valued athletes and partners, informed about the latest developments concerning COVID - 19.
LAST UPDATE: 4/14/2020
After many discussions and careful deliberation, the Trinona team has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Trinona weekend. Following medical and public agency recommendations, we believe this will keep participants, volunteers, spectators, and the community, safe. It is also important that we don't detract valuable resources away from local health systems during the pandemic.
Race Weekend would have marked the 12th annual Trinona Triathlon. Postponement was not a viable option in the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate and respond to the current situation. All registered athletes were sent an email on 4/14 with details regarding their registration.
