TRISUMTER TRIATHLON HAS BEEN CANCELLED
DUE TO HURRICANE MATTHEW
October 12, 2016
This notice of cancellation for the 2016 TriSumter Triathlon comes with great reluctance and with heavy hearts for Americans who are facing challenges daily since Hurricane Matthew made its way up the eastern coast and devastated communities as far inland as Sumter, South Carolina.
Due to Hurricane Matthew’s destructive path, and the impact it has had primarily on SC, NC and GA, the tough decision has been made based on the majority of registered participants living in areas affected by the storm. Recently reported approximately more than 500,000 residents in the Carolinas are still without power. Many coastal community residents are awaiting to be allowed back to their homes. Sumter and the surrounding area was one of the hardest hit inland communities in South Carolina starting with more than 45,000 without power and so far only restored to approximately 80%.
With the various issues arising from route interruptions, personal tragedies to man power constraints these are only some of the obstacles forcing us to cancel the event. We appreciate your participation and look forward to the 2017 TriSumter event! If you have any questions please feel free to contact the staff at 803-774-3998 Mon. - Fri. 8:30am - 5:00pm.
