About This Activity

Memphis in May Triathlon is postponed to Aug. 22 & 23, 2020.

After closely monitoring guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and local health officials, in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are following the City of Memphis authorities to not have originally scheduled festival events in May 2020. With the health and safety of our racers, volunteers, sponsors, and staff as our top priorities, we will postpone the May 16 & 17, 2020 Memphis in May Triathlon Race Weekend to Aug. 22 & 23, 2020.

As these are unprecedented times for all of us, Memphis in May Triathlon encourages all of our triathletes, staff, sponsors and volunteers to stay safe and continue to follow the recommendations of health officials; from frequent hand washing and sanitizing, to working from home if possible and social distancing as much as your situation allows.  Get outside to bike and run, walk the dog, do dry land swim exercises, weight train with soup cans. Let's pull together to help our neighbors, we will get through this stronger. Stay well!
