this period of uncertainty is putting a strain on each of us, in every part of the world. The current health emergency is proving to be an even more tiring and demanding challenge than what we are accustomed to through our sport.
The extreme nature of ICON has always been one of the strengths of this race, pushing participants beyond their limits along breathtaking routes and landscapes. But it’s not only this that has made this race unique. The sense of belonging and community has always stood central, especially during race week, creating unique bonds by sharing special moments, places and magical occasions to socialise.
Your preparation for ICON requires months of hard work and sacrifices; also for us organizers the preparations for the race take months and a lot of effort to ensure that everyone gets the best at maximum safety.
Under the current circumstances, it is not possible to guarantee a great event and your safety because of the necessary health restrictions and the uncertainties regarding the future.
For these reasons, we have decided to move ICON Extreme Triathlon to 2021. A difficult decision for us as for you. We felt, however, that it was necessary to make this decision well in advance out of respect for you and to not jeopardize your and our health and safety.
The 2020 registrations will remain valid for 2021. If it is impossible to participate next year, the registration can be extended to 2022, in a manner that will be communicated later to individual athletes. We ask you to choose no later than June 15th.
We hope to see you all soon in Livigno at the start line of ICON, in peak form and with determination, ready to go on a new magical journey together made up of emotions, shortness of breath, many kilometres and tears of joy.
