TriFecta Sprint Triathlon




9/7/2017 TRIFECTA TRIATHLON CANCELLED: After much discussion with the City of North Myrtle Beach we have decided the best course of action is to cancel the 2017 Trifecta Triathlon.  With the impending storm approaching we all feel the city resources need to be invested into storm preparation and not our event.  We also want to give our athletes, the majority of whom are from the Carolinas, their own chance to prepare as they need for the storm.  While we likely would be able to hold a safe event on Sunday, it simply is not in the best ineterests of everyone involved to do so.  We are always disappointed to make this sort of decision and hope you agree it is the correct decision.  

All registered athletes will receive two event credits good for any 2017 or 2018 SC Triathlon Series event.  These two credits will each be equal to 50% of the entry fee you paid to enter this event (the combined value of the two credits will be equal to the entry fee you paid).  These credits will appear in your user profile sometime early next week and will be good through the 2018 season.  

We hope you understand the reasons behind the cancellation, and the event credits, and hope you stay safe this weekend and next week.


9/6/2017 HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE: Obviously we are keeping a very close watch on the track of and forecasts for Hurricane Irma. While our plan presently is to race as scheduled the issue of a State of Emergency for South Carolina may alter that plan. We are currently in talks with USA Triathlon, the City of North Myrtle Beach and the State of South Carolina to determine the best course of action. We will keep everyone updated as soon as we have more information. We will be making a decision to race or not to race BEFORE the weekend.
