To all race teams, fans, and involved parties, the race date for the 13th Annual Hooters Clearwater Offshore Nationals has to be rescheduled one week earlier with new dates of September 23rd – 25th. This change is completely unexpected and out of our control. The City of Clearwater notified Race World Offshore and our event producer this past Friday that the National Ironman event was previously scheduled in 2020 and had been postponed for 2 years, now returning in 2022 for the October 1st weekend. We have tried everything possible to get it rescheduled or have some workaround and not conflict with the Offshore race. Unfortunately, due to various factors including too many road closures, beach road closures, Pier 60 closing, and the high demand for city police, there is no allowance for flexibility.
We wanted to notify everyone as soon as possible to make lodging and travel adjustments. We do apologize for the change of dates and only wish there was some other resolution.
Thank you for your understanding.
