TRi KiDS Milton – New Date

Dear TRi KiDS Milton Athletes and Families,

 

As pools, parks and recreation centres continue to be closed for the foreseeable future we have decided to reschedule TRi KiDS Milton to Sunday, September 6th (Labour Day weekend). The Town of Milton is not able to issue our permit for the new date at this time, and we caution that if the restrictions placed on large group gatherings is extended, or we don’t feel we can execute a safe event in September, we will cancel and provide options to registered athletes.

 

AUTOMATIC TRANSFER:

All registered athletes in the June 28th event will be transferred to the event on September 6th. Transfers are automatic and we do not need instruction to do so.

 

DEFERRAL OPTION:

We offer the option of deferring your TRi KiDS Milton registration to any race in the 2021 season. To defer your registration send us an email and include athlete name(s). Please note locations and dates for 2021 are not confirmed and will not be announced until December. Deferral requests sent by email must be received by April 28th.

 

REFUND OPTION:

If the new date of September 6th does not work for your family we can offer a refund. We will be refunding your registration fee in full, including tax. The refund does not include the processing fee that was charged by Race Roster, a third party registration provider. To refund your registration fee send us an email no later than April 28th. Requested refunds will be processed after April 28th.

 

Registration for TRi KiDS Milton is closed to new registrations for now but may reopen at a later date.

 

Thank you for your understanding, loyalty and enthusiasm for the TRi KiDS Triathlon Series. Be safe and well. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

TRi KiDS Burnaby – Cancelled

Dear TRi KiDS Burnaby Athletes and Families,

We are very sad and disappointed to announce the cancellation of TRi KiDS Burnaby scheduled for May 31, 2020. Under the circumstances and in consultation with the City of Burnaby we have made this difficult decision.

We will be refunding your registration fee in full, including tax. The refund will not include the processing fee that was charged by our third party registration provider. Refunds may take some time to process and we appreciate your patience.

Unfortunately we cannot offer a deferral to TRi KiDS Burnaby 2021. As you may know C.G. Brown Pool will be closing for renovation this fall and it is expected to take two years to complete. At this time we do not have an alternate site.

Thank you for your loyalty and enthusiasm for the TRi KiDS Triathlon Series. Be safe and well.

COVID-19 Update

Dear TRi KiDS and Families,

Like all event organizers in Canada and around the world, we have been monitoring the news and government updates regarding COVID-19.

We continue to plan for all 2020 TRi KiDS races starting with our first race at the end of May, still over two months away.

We are working closely with our city partners in each race location and continue to review the latest regional information to assess the public health risks based on this rapidly changing environment.

If the status of any of our races is impacted we will communicate these changes in a timely fashion.

Thank you for understanding.
