BELIZE CITY, Fri. Sept. 23, 2016–The Belize National Triathlon Association (BNTA) would like to notify the general public, sports fans, athletes and sponsors that the 16th Annual Lionman Triathlon, scheduled for September 25th, will be rescheduled to a later date. The BNTA has been monitoring the quality of the water at the Sandlighter Promenade since Hurricane Earl affected Belize. We have also had more rain than in previous years, which has in turn brought down-stream more silt and debris. After much debate, we have agreed that the safety of our athletes has always been, and will continue to be our main priority.
We have been in contact with a number of our supporters in Placencia and San Pedro as a possible venue for the race before the ending of the year.
