The organization Triathlon of Zarautz has just published on its website a statement announcing the cancellation for the second consecutive year of the test
The Zarautz Triathlon is one of the "mythical" of our country and that in 2021 we will be left wanting to enjoy it again.
The current situation of the pandemic in Spain and seeing that they cannot meet the health and safety requirements so that the test can be held, the organization has chosen to cancel the test
The test for the 34th edition will be on June 11, 2020
This is the statement:
Zarauzko Triatloi Elkartea, the organizing club of the event, has decided to CANCEL THE ZARAUZKO TRIATLOIA 2021 due to the current state of health of society. Therefore, we will have to postpone the 34th edition of the Zarauzko Triatloia for one more year.
After the cancellation of the test in 2020, we started the year with great doubts. However, from Zarauzko Triatloi Elkartea we have been working during the last months. The basis of all the work has been to take care of everyone's health and guarantee the COVID-19 protocols.
We have had several meetings with health services and institutions. Seeing that we will not be able to comply with all the health and safety requirements, we have decided to cancel this year's Zarauzko Triatloia.
First of all, we wanted to ensure the health of the participants. We know that you would like to participate in the Zarauzko Triatloia and we wanted to offer you with total security. We have proposed some changes in the circuit, especially in the running sector, but we are clear from the organization that we had to offer the 'usual' Zarauzko Triatloia; passing through the streets and among the people.
On the other hand, we wanted to ensure the safety of the volunteers who help us organize the test year after year, complying with the COVID-19 protocols and guaranteeing the health care of all.
And finally, we wanted to ensure the safety of the spectator and the people of Zarautz.
Given the current state of health, despite the difficult decision, the decision of the Zarauzko Triatloia has been to ensure the safety of all. For this reason, we have decided to cancel the Zarauzko Triatloia. From our association, we make an appointment for you to enjoy our test for next year. We hope that the situation improves and we can enjoy the Zarauzko Triatloia 'always'.
After the decision we made in the last edition, all of you who have a number for the 34th edition of the Zarauzko Triatloia will reserve the number for you. The remaining numbers will be decided later on how to name them.
Along these lines, we want to thank all the volunteers, sponsors and institutions that collaborate with the Zarauzko Triatloia !!
Hoping to see us on June 11, 2022, from Zarauzko Triatloi Elkartea we wish you all the best and we wish you the best for your health!
We look forward to the opportunity to continue and enjoy each other!
