POWERADE POTCAKEMAN TRIATHLON 2020 IS POSTPONED TO 2021 DUE TO COVID-19. PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR THE NEW DATE!
The Baark! Team had really hoped that by now, we would be in a position to set a date for the postponed Powerade Potcakeman Triathlon 2020. However, with there still being so much uncertainty regarding the lifting of lockdowns, beach openings, sporting events and public gatherings we don’t think we will be able to hold this event in 2020 and may need to postpone to 2021.
As most of you know, Baark! is entirely volunteer run and relies on your support in donations to perform it’s work. Thank you so much and we really hope to be able to hold our event at some point in 2021.
If there are any changes to the situation, we will of course update you.
