May 11, 2020 – update:
First, we hope you are well and safe and doing all you can to stay active during these very unique times. Based on current recommendations by USA Swimming, USA Triathlon and the CDC we feel it is in the best interest of all involved to cancel the 2020 Ramblin’ Rose Greenville event and return to normal in 2021.
All registered athletes have been sent an email on how to manage their entry to defer into 2021 or transfer into any other 2020 Ramblin’ Rose Event.
We absolutely hate this situation and hope that you understand how difficult it is for us to have to cancel the 2020 event.
