The 5150 Lake Lanier Triathlon, scheduled for Sept. 11, in Gainesville, Ga., has been postponed for 2011 due to conflicting special events taking place in and around Lake Lanier. Athletes will receive a full refund of their entry fee (including Active.com fee) within three to four weeks and a complimentary entry into 5150 Clearwater/5150 Series Finale taking place on Nov. 12, 2011 in Clearwater, FL.

19 if you are interested in receiving your complimentary slot into the
Clearwater event. Entry transfers and deferrals are not be permitted.
For all other inquiries, please contact athleteservices@5150. com.
We hope that you will join us for another 5150 Triathlon Series event in the future. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
A few observations for you WTC..
1. Lake Lanier was to be a training race, not an "A" race
2. There are always "special events" at Lake Lanier. It's freaking LAKE LANIER.. Are you reading this and not from Georgia? Google Lake Lanier. WTC knew this before announcing the race.
3. A full refund in 3-4 weeks. You want the money when I register, but I have 3-4 weeks to get my money back?
4. A complimentary entry into the Clearwater race? Clearwater isn't exactly in my backyard and your race entry was already expensive enough. Now I have to drive 9 hours to Clearwater, buy meals and get a hotel? On my daughter's 4th birthday?? Are you high?
5. Apparently this isn't the first 5150 race that was cancelled (see Provo).
6. Enough is enough... I am going to miss Augusta 70.3 next year and its fast swim and bike... Goodbye WTC.
I hear the Kiawah Island Olympic Distance Race is September 18th... Maybe that small race will appreciate my money more...
