Great Places

In light of the rapid spread worldwide of COVD-19, TriColumbusGA and its officers have decided to suspend all races until May 1, 2020. The races affected include the Chattahoochee Challenge Half Triathlon/Duathlon and the Great Bunny Chase 5k.

The Chattahoochee Challenge Half, located in Columbus, GA will be moved to September 12, 2020 at its same location in Columbus, GA. The Great Bunny Chase 5k at Callaway Gardens will be cancelled for 2020.

As athletes ourselves, this was a hard decision to make, however the safety of our community, athletes, staff, volunteers, officials, and spectators remain our highest priority.

Chattahoochee Challenge Registered Athletes:
Athletes will be automatically transferred to the rescheduled date. For those that the new date does not work, we will allow deferrals into the same event the next year or one of our other events in the 2020 calendar (see www.tricolumbusga.com).

Great Bunny Chase Registered Athletes:

We will allow deferrals into the same event the next year or to the Santa Claus Classic 10k in December. Registered children for the Great Bunny Chase Fun Run will eligible to run in either of our TriColumbusGA Kids Fun Runs.

Self-care and Transmission Minimization

Athletes who are sick or have been potentially exposed to an infectious agent must not compete or attend any events, as this puts others at risk.

Please follow the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for basic protective measures against the new coronavirus:

· Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.

· Regularly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash your hands with soap and water, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

· Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

· Practice good respiratory hygiene. Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of used tissues immediately and appropriately in a bin.

While we know this is disruptive to your training schedules and future events, we appreciate your understanding and support at this time. We wish you nothing but health and continued fitness this year.
