2022 California Triathlon in Angels Camp canceled

The California Triathlon 2022 set for this weekend at Lake New Melones at Angels Camp has been canceled due to low lake water levels. “We hoped that the snowfall would increase the level similar to Lake Folsom and others around the area, but unfortunately this did not happen to allow the event space to have enough water,” the event said on its website. “All participants who registered for the event will be postponed until 2023.” In an email to the athletes, Ryan Coelho of USA Productions said that climate change is making it difficult for events to take place on waterways. “Unfortunately, as global warming increases and we see our lake / reservoir levels continue to fall, our water events will become much more difficult to conduct,” he said. This year’s triathlon was to include the Olympics and sprints, biathlon, water sports, rowing triathlon, relay races, fun youth running and more.
