Sharon Hudson from Craven District Council said:

“We have made the difficult but inevitable decision to postpone the Skipton Triathlon.

“In light of all the recent advice regarding mass gatherings and the health and wellbeing of all the entrants and our numerous helpers and volunteers we felt we had no option but to postpone.

“We have set the new date of Sunday 6th Sept 2020 and we are hoping that events in the country will have returned to some normality and we are able to run the Triathlon.

“We have already spent a lot of time and costs in the planning and preparation of the Triathlon and would really ask for competitors’ continued support of this event.

“We know this is disappointing for entrants as well as everyone who is involved in the organisation of the Triathlon but thank everyone for their understanding.”

All entrants have been emailed with information about their options.
