Cancellation Policy
The Edinboro Triathlon is a non-profit and total volunteer event. All proceeds will be used first to cover expenses of the event. All funds remaining will directly benefit local non-profit service groups and projects including, in part, Edinboro University student scholarship programs, the Edinboro Volunteer Fire Department and the Lakeside Association.  In the unlikely event of a cancellation of the race (or any part) due to severe weather, water or other safety-related conditions, entry fees are non-refundable and will be used to pay for pre-race expenses. There is a no-refund policy for any matters out of the race directors control such as illness, participants unable to attend the event, timing issues, etc.  Remaining funds will benefit the selected non-profits.

WEATHER, WATER, COURSE CONDITIONS on Race Day. Should weather, water or course conditions become threatening to the safety of those on the course, participating athletes are required to follow all directives from triathlon officials...including fire department representatives...to leave the course immediately.  Everyone's cooperation is needed / appreciated.
