Welcome to Peasantman™

Hello all. Some of you may be relieved, some of you may be disappointed, but all of you have been wondering, and we're assuming none of you will be surprised.

The pandemic we are currently experiencing has caused numerous cancellations and postponements worldwide. Many of you have expressed your inability to train properly, especially when it comes to swimming. Considering the fate of other races, the unlikelihood of landing sufficient race support or volunteers, and the inability to get a guarantee from state and local officials that a race will even be possible come August, there is just no way we can extend our decision any longer. In the extreme outside chance the 2020 race were even allowed to take place, we would not be able guarantee the safety of our competitors - our #1 priority. 

Because of these factors, we regret to inform you that Peasantman 2020 will not take place. Our new plan instead comes in two parts:

  1. EVERY SINGLE COMPETITOR will automatically be deferred to 2021. This includes the individual 2019 winners who earned a free slot, and anyone who already deferred their 2019 registration to this year.
  2. EVERY SINGLE COMPETITOR will be allowed to do a Virtual Peasantman 2020 – while still automatically being registered for next year. (Details and rules coming soon).

Because we are a small race (and have never turned a profit) we are not able to issue any partial or full refunds. But this two-race-for-one solution means we will still take registrations for anyone wishing to do a Virtual Peasantman along with next year’s race on Sunday August 15, 2021. If you feel you cannot make next year’s Peasantman race, you still have until next summer to transfer your race entry to someone else. We are waiving all deferral fees and transfer fees during this time for 2020 registrants. 

There is still a lot for us to do in the meantime (such as revisions and updates to our website and social media accounts), so we will be sending out more details soon to address any additional questions and concerns you may have. We look forward to seeing you virtually this summer, and in person in 2021.

What is a 'Steel Distance' Triathlon?
Peasantman is an officially sanctioned USA Triathlon event. Our own 'Steel Distances' are just slightly longer than traditional triathlon distances. But that's okay, because Peasants are stronger, and Peasants are out to prove their superiority. As illustrated below, you'll see that the extra distance is only on the bike course, but the swim and run haven't changed. Oh yeah... Peasants have an extra half hour to finish. No longer will you be closed out at the stroke of midnight. Peasants have until 12:30am!

Charity Included
As a racer, your online registration will ask you to choose from a list of charities toward which to donate a portion of your race fee. It's not an added cost... it is simply a part of the race fee that will be redirected. The charities include the Humane Society of Yates County, Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, Camp Good Days, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project and the American Cancer Society. Feel free to raise money during the race for other charities that you may be affiliated with!
Additional Beneficiaries:
We believe in giving back to the communities that support us. Here are two that benefit immediately from your support on race weekend.
  Milly's Pantry is a Penn Yan-based organization run entirely by volunteers distributing food locally to those in need. So bring at least one non-perishable food item for donation on race weekend. You can drop it off with the volunteers at the race packet pickup area.
  R Community Bikes is a grassroots 501(c)3 organization that collects and repairs used bicycles for distribution, free of charge, to Rochester, NY's most needy children and adults. If you have an old bike no longer in use (in any condition), please bring it on race weekend for donation. Just leave it with volunteers at the race packet pickup area or at the R Community Bikes booth at the expo.
