Hello. We hope that you have had a great start to 2014.
We are sorry to announce that Relay Around Columbus – RAC, will need to be put on hold in 2014 until 2015. This past year Ohio State had requested, through the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department, to change the weekend of RAC to accommodate a conflict with Special Olympics held on their campus. We were happy to help. Unfortunately, we have just learned that due to family obligations we will be out of the country for the week when RAC is scheduled. Because of all the different communities and organizations involved it is not possible to find another weekend to hold the event during the summer. We are extremely dismayed with this development. We had to make a choice between the event and family... which is not that difficult of choice, but none the less disappointing. We are planning on coming back in 2015 and will let you know the dates as they become available.
Endurance Sports Productions (ESP) is working to bring new events to Columbus and has established the return of a triathlon to Antrim Park that includes biking down State Route 315. The event is called 2575 Columbus and is part of the 2575 Triathlon Series which includes qualifications to a championship event in January of 2015. You can learn more about the event series at 2575tri.com. The event will be held on August 17, 2014 and will be for athletes of all abilities. A new specific event website will be up and running soon.
We appreciate your understanding with this announcement and hope to see you at the 2575 Triathlon Columbus, and in 2015 for the return of Relay Around Columbus.
Monica Sencio and Scott Weaver.
