Bad weather, forecast for Sunday (July 29,) has forced the postponement of the Melin Sospan Sizzler Middle Distance Triathlon.
More than 200 athletes had entered for the popular annual event – sponsored by Melin Consultants, providers of sustainable building and construction solutions.
Race organiser Noelwyn Daniel announced the postponement on Thursday night after Met Office forecasts predicted a break In the summer heatwave.
He said: “We’ve had months of glorious weather, but the forecast for Sunday is bad.
‘Due to these horrendous weather predictions, with winds of more than 40mph from 9am on Sunday the safety of all athletes and volunteers could not be guaranteed.
“I’ve therefore made the call early to avoid athletes from starting their journeys.
“Athletes who have entered should check their email mailbox as a detailed email with options has been sent out.
“I’m gutted for you as athletes. You will have trained so hard for the Sizzler and I know how this really disrupts your plans. Your health and safety and that of more than 60 volunteers is my primary concern and we all get to fight another day.”
The Melin Sospan Sizzler Middle Distance Triathlon is being rescheduled for August 26 and more information on the postponed event will appear later.
