Great Floridian Triathlon COVID-19 Statement

Sommer Sports was able to resume its 2020 Clermont triathlon event schedule on June 27 with its first live event since the March lock-down. The triathlon event was a tremendous success and the feedback from participants was very positive. As we move forward during these unprecedented times, the same creativity, ingenuity, and passion that has shaped Sommer Sports events in the past, will help shape our events in the future. Because the health, safety and well-being of the community, athletes, staff, and volunteers, is central to everything we stand for, we take racing during COVID-19 very seriously. We are taking every precaution we can to provide a safe environment for you to race in. We would not do it if we did not think we could pull it off effectively.

In early August the City of Clermont once again closed its venues down to special events due to Florida's high COVID case count in July. As a result of this decision, we put registration for this year's GFT on hold. Since that time the COVID count has dropped drastically and stabalized. We expect the city to revisit the closure of venues in early September and we are very optimistic that the city will allow the GFT to take place as planned on Oct. 24. At that time we will reopen regiatration with a limited number of slots for each distance being made available.

We are aware that the COVID-19 situation is continuing to evolve. Should guidance change, we are ready to make necessary changes to abide by the revised guidelines, including rescheduling or cancelling the Great Floridian Triathlon if needed. All our live events will be conducted within guidelines established by City of Clermont, Lake County, State of Florida, CDC, USA Triathlon, and USAT Track & Field.
