Rivercities Triathlon cancellation

Sportspectrum Rivercities Triathlon

   We regret to announce that the 40th annual 2020 Sportspectrum Rivercities Triathlon and IRONFISH Kids Triathlon cannot take place August 1st and 2nd due to acceleration of Covid-19 infections in Louisiana and nationally. Providing for health and safety of our athletes, their families, volunteers and community is the top priority of our staff and organization. In accordance with the USAT’s safe Return to Multisport Initiative, the health and safety of our community is of utmost priority, and in alignment with remarks by Governor Edwards on Tuesday June 22, it would not be responsible to host the event at this time.

   Race Director Matt Brown and the RCT race committee have been working in conjunction with city and parish officials; Dr. Martha Whyte, Medical director of our regional Department of Public Health, Mr. Steve Nezat, Bossier Parish director of EMS, and Robert Berry, executive director of Cypress Black Bayou Board of Commissioners to establish best practices and procedures to stage such an event.

    We are grateful to our community leadership in helping to make this difficult decision to cancel RCT20 and IRONFISH Kids Triathlon. We will continue working to establish safe and successful return to racing for the 2021 event.

   We are giving you two options: Defer to the 2021Race (August 1st, 2021) or a refund of 50% of your entry fee. Sorry but we cannot give a 50% refund plus your packet. No packets will be mailed.
