In these trying Corona Virus times I thought of doing something optimistic and a bit inspiring with those that wish to take part. We are researching a new strategy so stay tuned. As many of you know we have been running the Aerothlon, a running, paragliding and mountain bike race www.aerothlon.com in 6 countries now. With the virus lockdown our international events may be on hold but our own event here in Pemberton (a third annual) and international travel restrictions could take place in a smart , more virtual way on Aug 30th, Labor day weekend. Instead of a mass crowd start we can use many great technologies out there. We already have live tracking on www.airtribune.com which we used in Colombia and people watched the event in real time live all over the world. . We can stagger start times, every few minutes, eliminate large award ceremonies and move the event online even more. This would mean needing more cameras along route, helmet mounts and internet coverage along the way. Then using facebook, twitter, instagram,zoom, youtube, linked in, what's up We would promote the race and view it online. Pemberton's events are all cancelled this year, including the slow food ride. Therefore it would be nice to give everyone some hope and set a precedent with a cool event while practising “ The New Normal “ with social distancing practices still in place yet promoting our outdoor tourism for the future when things ease up more. Should you wish to get involved whether its as a cameramen/women , marketing help, volunteers and any tech help so we can geek out with this feel free to contact me. We invite athletes to enter in all categories. Raceroster, our event registration company is facilitating online events and will work with us.
The Pemberton Aerothlon is set again for next year after it’s inaugural event in 2018 and second annual last September 1st 2019. We learned a lot from the last two years. We had a variety of international athletes participate and registration is set for Sunday ,Aug 30th, 2020 . Please read our update here
