Geist Triathlon Announces Date Change to Saturday, July 27
Public, Participant Safety Factors in Moving the Inaugural Event Date
(FISHERS, Ind.) May 23, 2013—Event organizers announced today that the Geist Triathlon at the Indianapolis Sailing Club, originally scheduled for June 22, will now be held on Saturday, July 27 at 8 a.m. After discussion with Town officials, event organizers and town staff grew concerned for public and participant safety given two other large July 4th community events already scheduled within two weeks of the original date.
“Our number one priority in planning this great event is for the safety of those who participate,” said Geist Triathlon co-organizer Tom Britt. “After much discussion, we decided to move the event to a new date on July 27 so that we can ensure a safe and successful event.”
Persons who have preregistered for the inaugural event and elect to compete on July 27 will be given a commemorative shoulder-strap tote bag. For those preregistered athletes that cannot reschedule, a full refund will be given or you may transfer your entry to the Fishers Area Sprint Triathlon in September.
