2020 is the year of virtual racing from 5Ks to Marathons to Ironman events. Many athletes are nervous, wondering if any races will be happening or what race events will be like in 2021. Now that there is a vaccine for COVID, I see races happening. but might not happen till June and will look different. Staggered starts, no spectators, and smaller number of athletes. Bikers, runners and triathletes just want to race at the events and see their friends. Race directors want you back to race live too! 2021calendar is starting to fill up with events which some athletes are starting to sign up. I’m being cautious but want my athletes be excited again about racing. Start planning your race schedule but also be flexible with the new norm. Stay healthy and safe!
