Citing financial reasons, the organising team at TriStar Milton Keynes has issued a statement to confirm that the pro prize purse at the inaugural event has been withdrawn…
With a great regret we have to inform that despite of what was previously announced, there will be no PRO Prize Purse distributed among the winners of TriStar111 Milton Keynes. Please accept our apologies for this last-minute change.
We are disappointed with this situation, but in this case this hard decision makes the event sustainable. We are catching up all the professional registered and offering solutions for this. This decision about TriStar Milton Keynes Pro Prize Purse is not affecting other past or future TriStar events at all. TriStar aims to offer high quality events for Professional athletes, Age groupers and Triathlon fans. TriStar aims to set up in a short period of time a great success event in Milton Keynes, and this is the only way at this moment to keep growing up this race.
Nothing changes for the 280 Age Groupers already registered for the inaugural edition of the TriStar Milton Keynes.
The inaugural TriStar Milton Keynes will be held on 29 July 2012, 10 days before the Olympic triathlon at London 2012.
