Canceled due to Declared Public Health Emergency

March 15, 2020

Dear athletes,

The Lobo Triathlon wants to assure you that your health, safety and well-being is our highest priority. As we approach our race scheduled for April 18 and 19, our organization has been in regular contact with UNM, the City of Albuquerque, the State of New Mexico and USA Triathlon concerning coronavirus (COVID-19) and best practices for mass participation events. We’ve been following the guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the other parties listed above, and have been hoping to be able to continue. Unfortunately, due to the Public Health Emergency Declaration by the New Mexico Department of Health, and the orders of the Governor of the State of New Mexico and actions of the City of Albuquerque, we must cancel the 2020 Lobo Triathlon.

We were hoping that the temporary closing of schools and mass gatherings would bring a quick conclusion to the COVID-19 issue, but the socially responsible thing to do is cancel. The interim actions are having an effect on individual athletes, their training, and on the public safety personnel and volunteers that we rely upon. We hope that everyone gets through this incident with only minor inconveniences.

We will automatically defer all entries to next year. We will be announcing the 2021 dates soon. We are also hoping to have an announcement soon regarding another event this fall that you might want to defer your registration towards.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this ever-changing situation.
