Those of you familiar with our brand know that REV3 was built from the ground up with an athlete focus, first and foremost. From the entire team at REV3 your health and safety is our #1 priority. The COVID-19 pandemic has consumed the news and impacted our daily lives in many different ways.
As you know by now the sporting world has been turned upside down by this virus, and triathlon is no exception. REV3 is carefully monitoring the pandemic and is in close contact with local, county, state, and federal authorities. We are faced with incredibly difficult decisions about our event season, and will make those decisions in a timely fashion with the safety of our athletes top of mind. The CDC has recommended a cancellation or postponement of all mass gathering events greater than 50 people for the next 8 weeks beginning March 15th.
The Westfields Triathlon scheduled to take place on Sunday April 26 will be postponed. The new race date will be Sunday October 4th, 2020.
We know that this news is disappointing to you, just as it is disappointing to us. We poured ourhearts and souls, as well as countless hours, into this event and postponing is never an easydecision to make. We also understand the hours you have dedicated to training for this race, so please know that this postponement was made with the safety of the entire community inmind, including Fairfax County’s most vulnerable populations. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding during this unprecedented time.
You have 3 options:
1. Join us on October 4th. You don’t need to do anything. Your entry will automatically transfer to the new date.
2. If the new date doesn’t work for you, you may defer your entry to another sprint distance race in 2020 or to the 2021 Westfields Triathlon. You will have until April 3rd to make this change at no charge. After April 3rd, the deferral fee will apply. You will need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your preference.
3. Should the new date not work but you want to donate your entry to the Westfields beneficiaries (Veterans Moving Forward, Westfields High School, Western Fairfax Christian Ministries, and Cub Run Recenter). You will need to contact email@example.com to indicate this.
If you have yet to sign up, we will freeze the price until race week. We need your support so please consider racing with us.
