Why would I waive my compensation?
While we would prefer to compensate every athlete for all of his costst, reality is that it will be all hands on deck to be able to get through this rough year and to make sure that we will be organising races again in the future.
Why is that?
Throughout the entire year, we work on the organisation of the TRI HARD races with a small team of full-timers. This means that we have a couple of fixed costs every month, regardless of the amount of races we organise in a year. For instance: we have the monthly personnel costs and the rent of our office and storage. Usually, these costs are covered by the income that we gather through registrations for our races and partnerships with company’s who want to use our platform to gain visibility. In March, these incomes have come to a full stop, while we still need to pay the fixed costs every month.
Every athlete who choses not to be compensated by us, helps us limit the additional costs and therefore enlarges the changes of our company to get through this year. Since we are very thankful to those who chose this option, we thank them by offering an exclusive triathlon hoofd (value €44,95) for free.
