Jessie Mejia wrote on September 15th, 2017

Dear volunteer,

Thank you very much for registering to volunteer at the Escape to Miami Triathlon next weekend.
Unfortunately, after great deliberation, and exhausting all options for an alternate weekend, it is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of the 2017 Escape to Miami Triathlon.
The decision to cancel is made in consideration of continued recovery efforts across Miami, South Florida and the entire Southeastern United States.

While uncharacteristically resilient, we Miamians are still presented with a variety of challenges, including power outages, school closures, unsafe water conditions and excessive storm debris. Our team continues to monitor needs of local agencies, and firmly believes that using valuable city services to produce a triathlon is not in the community’s best interest.
Therefore, Life Time Tri is unable to commit to providing a safe, secure and premiere racing experience in Miami on September 24.

We appreciate your patience, your understanding and your support of our local community and athletes.

We do hope to see you next year in September. If you are interested, we encourage all volunteers to come out and support our next event, our Turkey Trot 5K/10K on Thanksgiving Day. Check out the shifts in the GivePulse Lifetime Florida page. If you are part of a group that will be volunteering, please have your group leader contact me about reserving spots for the shift you want to volunteer.

Many thanks and we hope you and your families are doing well!
Life Time team
