Race organizers were forced to cancel the 2016 Life Time Tri Boulder Peak event, which was scheduled to take place on Sunday, July 10, the evening before the race due to an area wildfire. With all of the county’s resources needed to support the fire fighting efforts, race organizers had to make the difficult decision. In what would have been its 25th running, the event was going to feature a unique $25,000 relay competition.
The following announcement was posted on the race website:
It is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of the 2016 Life Time Tri Boulder Peak presented by Voler. This evening a local disaster declaration was announced across Boulder County. All police, fire and EMS resources are being mobilized and reallocated across Nederland and Cold Springs in support of the current wildfire. As a result, the Boulder County Public Safety officials have mandated that our event be cancelled.
After exhausting all options, including course modifications and rescheduling, we are unable to provide our athletes with either an alternate event or a safe race experience.
Organizers also announced that they will announce a registration solution within 24 hours.
