To Ayia Napa Triathlon 2020 registrants,
Please read this email thoroughly as there is critical information.
As most of you have been following the evolving situation around the world, you are aware of risks with travel and health as defined by various government agencies. The Cyprus government has decided to ban the public gatherings until further notice on March 10, 2020. Additionally, as of March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) has officially declared the situation as a pandemic.
Nireas Triathlon is following the direction of our government and health professionals. We are conscious of the fact that taking part in races is critical to an athlete. However, we are prioritizing athlete, coach, officials, staff health and safety.
Postponing the event is difficult on a practical level. Also, mass public gatherings ban implemented, is not clear how long would last. Therefore, and in compliance with the Government directive we have decided to cancel Ayia Napa Triathlon 2020.
You understand that the organization of the event was at its final stage with all outsourcing contracts signed executed and all the necessary expenses including advertisement and promotion already paid.
According to the waiver of liability that you have accepted during registration (we draw your attention to article 8) the organizer is not responsible for any refunds. However, we have decided as a minimum compensation, to offer all Ayia Napa Triathlon 2020 registered athletes the opportunity to transfer their registrations to any other of Nireas Triathlon events in 2020 or Ayia Napa triathlon 2021 to be held in March 2021.
