2020 Tri Shark Classic Cancelled

Friends & Fans of Tri-Shark Classic,

The rescheduled 2020 Tri-Shark Classic, which was to be held on September 19, 2020, has been cancelled.   Unfortunately, like much of the nation, Illinois has seen an increase in cases as of late.  After many discussions with our staff, volunteer groups and local public health officials we have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel the 2020 race.

Like you, we are triathletes and understand your strong desire to compete.  However, we cannot put our athletes, their families, volunteers, spectators, and our community at risk given the current continued state of the pandemic.

The Tri-Shark Classic has a no cancellation policy. However, in light of the unique circumstances surrounding the cancellation, if you have already paid and registered for the 2020 race we would like to offer you the following two options:

To make your selection go to:  

You have until Sunday August 16th to make your selection. If you do not make a selection, you will be granted Option 1 (deferral).

Option 1: Defer registration to the 2021 race (tentatively 6/5/2021). We are offering a free one time deferral option to the 2021 race. You will be given one free entry into the 2021 race. This deferral is non-transferable. Your USAT membership must be current on the 2021 date.

Option 2: Request a partial refund totaling 50% of the base entry fee paid (less fees). If you paid for any USAT membership options as part of your registration, we do not have the ability to refund these. For more information please reach out to USA Triathlon at: .

Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate these unique times.
