Bermuda Triple Challenge falls victim to Covid-19 restrictions

An annual obstacle racing challenge which raises funds for youth-oriented charities has been called off for this year, organisers have announced.

The Bermuda Triple Challenge, scheduled for March 19 to March 21, had to be suspended because of the continuing pandemic.

James Holloway and Jason Correia of the race committee said the decision was made with “great regret” for an event that showcases the island to visitors as well as supporting young people.

They said their commitment “has not wavered” but they were following the Government's guidance on group restrictions.

They added that they looked forward to “bursting back on the scene in March of 2022”.

“We have come to the conclusion that there is no way to safely run this event given the current circumstances in Bermuda and globally.

“Whilst we understand that this announcement will certainly be a disappointment for many, we cannot in good conscience host the event which would put participants, volunteers and staff at risk.

“We hope 2021 will see a remarkable improvement over 2020 and we are looking forward to seeing everyone once again in 2022.“
