📅 October 28 🏊🏼♂️ #SWIM
📅 October 29 🚴 #BIKE
📅 October 30 🏃🏽 #RUN
The main reasons for the change of date have been due to the suggestions of the athletes and the situation of restrictions of the pandemic.
This is the official statement:
"KEY ELEMENTS TO A SUCCESSFUL EVENT:
- LISTEN TO ATHLETES
- CHANGE AND ADAPT
- MOVE FORWARD DON'T LOOK BACK
- DO NOT EXCUSE
We had to change!
After an overwhelming request by athletes to change the date. After the insecurities some still feel about traveling so early in the season and the difficult time for authorities to guarantee the date, We made the decision to change the date.
Last minute changes are the worst for any athlete and event. So we decided the best was to make this move now.
Some Changes Are for The Best and The New Date IS No Exception, The Fall In the Algarve Is Most Likely The Best Time For A Late Vacation With The Best Weather Conditions Europe Can Offer.
BE EAGER. BE BRAVE. BE STRONG."
