Weather Contingency Plan
We are hoping and praying for great weather Sunday morning. As of now, rain does look like it COULD be in the forecast. We are monitoring the weather closely and are prepared to make a call by Friday afternoon. We will hold the triathlon rain or shine as long as severe weather is not present. In case of heavy rain we reserve the right to reduce the event to a Biathlon (swim/run).
