Message from the Race Director:
Sanctioned Event

Dear athletes, sponsors, volunteers and friends,


It is will heartfelt sadness that I inform you our event team will be canceling the 2016 Battle of the Bridges Triathlon scheduled for October 2, 2016. Since 2003 we have championed the cause of raising monies to assist cancer patients and their families. I now have that battle to face with, a serious diagnosis and long treatment course ahead. Our team just cannot give the best athlete experience without the entire team in place.


In the coming weeks you will receive word on how your registration dollars will be refunded to you via IM Athlete. At this time our event team is unclear of the 2017 date, but will continue to keep you informed as we know more.


Thank you so much for your valued participation in the Battle of the Bridges Triathlon and your kind and continued support.


Please consider a donation to Cancer Care Foundation of Brevard, Inc. 


Yours in good health,


Christine Lighthill

USAT Certified Race Director

How does a Race Director get so lucky and so Blessed? Thank you to April and Julio Castillo and all who helped coordinate, oversee and participated in the mock Battle of the Bridges triathlon. What an honor to have you all do this for me at a time when I just couldn't. I am so grateful for the funds that you raised for our local cancer patients here in Brevard county! Each of you inspires me, lifts me up and keeps me motivated in this often exhausting battle against Colon and Liver cancer. Much love and gratitude to all of you!
