As you all know, we took over the Rock Cliff Triathlon this year from our good friends at US Trisports. Trouble is, we didn’t finalize the agreement until late this spring and as such we weren’t able to get it on our calendar until later than we would have liked. As a result, we’ve seen lackluster registration results for that race and we are getting ever closer to the event.
The triathlon community in Utah is vibrant and as athletes you have a ton of choices regarding what events you can choose to compete in. Perhaps, we just got this race on everyone’s calendar a little late. We are not ready to throw in the towel yet and call it off for 2011, but, it’s getting close to the point in time where we are going to have to make a call one way or another.
After losing BAM this year I don’t think our Utah Triathletes want to lose another race as well. If we can get enough athletes by the weekend of the Salem Spring to support Rock Cliff, we’ll keep it on the schedule. Otherwise we’ll cancel this year’s event and reboot for next year.
UPDATE 5/20/2011: With the cancellation of 5i50 on the same day as the Rock Cliff event we are offering a special discount code for the next week or so for anyone who wants to enter Rock Cliff. With the 5i50 being cancelled, I think we’ll have enough cross-overs from that event to keep Rock Cliff going in 2011 and on into the future in 2012.
