Lycra & Lace Triathlon 2017 - Cancelled

Saturday October 7, 2017 - 8:00AM

It's been a challenging week for Florida as we faced Hurricane Irma and continue to deal with with aftermath. We hope that you and your family have come through it safely.

After much deliberation, and exhausting all options in search of an alternate weekend, it is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of the 2017 Lycra & Lace Triathlon.

The decision to cancel was made in consideration of the continued recovery efforts across the Tampa Bay area, and the entire state of Florida. We have all been presented with a variety of challenges, including power outages, school closures, unsafe water conditions, and excessive storm debris. Since numerous local resources, Sheriff/Fire/EMS has been over extended during this period along with equipment damage. Ft De Soto Park in not yet opened to the public. It is not in the best interest to be using valuable Pinellas county services to produce a triathlon.

Therefore, at this time, Florida Race Place is unable to commit to providing a safe, secure, triathlon experience at Ft De Soto Park on October 7th. We appreciate your patience, your understanding, and your support of our local community.
