Myself and several friends trained for the Muskoka 225(an ironman distance tri) last summer. 5 days before the event it was cancelled. The race organisers(TBM sports - based in Ottawa) apparently weren't going to make enough money.
This is incredibly sleazy. I encourage all multi sport athletes to boycott their future events.

TBM  sucks!

Were not going to make enough money or were not going to cover expenses?

There is a difference.  I can live with the latter since someone would
have to pay for the shortfall;  I (as a staunch capitalist) also think
that the former could be argued as a reason.  If they want to make this a
long term success, then they might need to slide by the first few years
and then make a profit later.

Question plaguing me as I was looking at a map of Hawaii:
Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?

This is the same poster who asked for "ultra events info", then went
trolling with "loves to draft".
So "Dr Scull" has an axe to grind....
While I sympathize with your disappointment/major let down with the
cancelled Muskoka 225 event last summer,  please spare us your flame
baiting. It would be more informative to RST to read about the cancelled
race and why/what happened. Back it up with some good research before you
ask for a boycott. You may or may not have a good case, what are the
facts? Otherwise do yourself a favor and not post your immaturity for all
the world to see by trolling.
