WTC statement on Ironman 70.3 National Harbor cancellation

Ironman brand owner World Triathlon Corp (WTC) has issued a statement about Ironman 70.3 National Harbor, which would have been the first-ever Ironman 70.3 triathlon in the Washington DC Metropolitan area – but was cancelled in May this year.

WTC statement:
Washington Sports & Event Management, LLC (WSEM); PGCT, LLC (PGCT) and Chuck Brodsky have reached a settlement with WTC related to PGCT’s cancellation of the inaugural Ironman 70.3 National Harbor. As a result of that confidential settlement, WSEM has agreed to drop its defamation lawsuit against WTC, and PGCT will pay WTC an undisclosed amount in damages.

Further details were not available at the time of writing. The early May 2012 cancellation of a much anticipated race did catch many off-guard.

The inaugural Ironman 70.3 National Harbor triathlon, scheduled for 5 August 2012, was due to take place at National Harbor in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The event was cancelled by the local race producers in May. At the time a full refund was offered, with Ironman following up by offering discounted entry to other IM 70.3 events.
