2020 Oil Man Texas COVID-19 Update 7/30/2020

For nearly 20 years, the Oil Man Texas (Iron Star) Triathlon has been a celebrated triathlon event in the greater Houston area. Currently, we are continuing to prepare for our Oil Man Texas Triathlon on Sunday, November 1, 2020 with the understanding that the safety and well-being of our athletes, volunteers and spectators is our top priority. There are many external factors being considered and we are working to ensure our planning accounts for all measures necessary to hold a safe event. These efforts include working with city and county officials to coordinate our preparations with current guidelines and any foreseeable future guidelines that may be in place at the time of our event.

We are currently communicating with these partners and we remain optimistic for a November event, recognizing that the current situation is fluid and we need to remain flexible. We also recognize these partners’ primary focus at this time is the health and safety of the community and must allow for them to focus on the current matters at hand.

We also know this uncertainty may cause reservation in securing your entry into the November 2020 triathlon but we want to express our commitment is and always has been to our athletes. We promise to be transparent and share race weekend decisions with you as soon as possible. Our goal is to provide you with options outside our standard event policies should the event be forced to cancel due to COVID-19 related concerns.

With that in mind, we are instituting a registration guarantee for all entries into the 2020 Oil Man Texas Triathlon. This guarantee means that if the 2020 Oil Man Texas Triathlon is unable to be conducted for any reason related to the COVID-19 public health crisis, all registrants will receive one FREE deferred entry for the equivalent race entry (individual or relay) to be used in one of the following 2 years (2021 or 2022).

Should additional circumstances arise prohibiting the 2020 event to proceed as planned, our commitment to you is that we will work to inform you of those

decisions as soon as possible and provide you with any additional registration options at that time.
