2021 Rookie Triathlon and Jack’s Generic Triathlon Canceled
April 13, 2021
Both are Central Texas’ most loved and longest-standing triathlons
AUSTIN, Texas, April 14, 2021 — High Five Events has canceled Rookie Triathlon and Jack’s Generic Triathlon for 2021. The decision was made due to heightened COVID-19 requirements and a low number of registrations. Rookie Tri was scheduled for May 2nd and Jack’s Generic Tri was scheduled for August 29th. Registrants of these two canceled events will have the option to transfer their registration to any High Five Events event within the next 12 months at no cost.
“Rookie Tri and Jack’s Generic Tri were two of our first events and we know how much they mean to the tri community because they mean that much to us too,” said Jack Murray, co-owner of High Five Events. “We’re excited to continue introducing triathlon to first-timers with Rookie Divisions and distances at CapTex Tri and Kerrville Tri.”
CapTex Triathlon presented by Life Time and Kerrville Triathlon Festival will now include Rookie Divisions and distances. The CapTex Tri Rookie distance will feature a 300m swim, 12-mile bike ride, and 2-mile run. The Kerrville Triathlon Rookie distance will feature a 300m swim, 14-mile bike ride, and 2-mile run. This will continue the tradition of introducing triathlon to first-timers like Rookie Tri has for 16 years.
