Greetings T-Rex Series Athletes,
Like most everything so far in 2020, Our hope for a triathlon in 2020 has ended. Michigan State Parks are still standing firm for August at a 100 person limit including volunteers, staff, participants and spectators and we are unable to split up the event. To execute a safe triathlon with this limit would be close to impossible. Our hearts break a little more each day as we say goodbye to each event that we love so much!
We love to put on events and we're missing you all terribly. To smooth the process of changing your registrations we've created on online form in which you can find your name, and then make a selection for each triathlon that is applicable to you. Each triathlon you were still registered to participate in has 3 options:
- Your first option is to defer your entries to the 2021 T-Rex Tri event.
- The second is to receive a $50 credit. This would come to you as a coupon code, would be good to use on ANY RF Event, and would not expire for 2 years following the issue date. Codes will be issued on August 19, 2020.
- Your final option is To donate your entry money back to RF Events to help us keep the lights on as we work to shuffle ahead and survive, so we can be here for the future and create quality events that let you meet your goals and put your hard training to use.
Please peruse THIS FORM and make your selections by August 10, 2020.
Why can't you postpone? - To date, we have canceled or postponed 20+ events. We are digging ourselves into a hole that will take us an extended amount of time to dig out of. At this point we have hit the wall and our options are limited.
Why can't you offer a refund? - We know what a delicate subject money is at this time, and we are attempting to be as transparent as possible in regards to why we are unable to offer a refund. A large majority of the planning and man hours go into the event well before race day; we spend a large portion of the projected income in setting up the event prior to registration opening, When our world was turned upside down from COVID-19, entry money came to a standstill. With each cancellation our hole gets deeper and deeper. We've made deposits, purchased swag and We are unable to provide a full refund because the money is simply not there.
The sad, defeated and lonely hard working Crew at RF Events who so look forward to working hard for you again someday.
