As outlined in the website’s “contingency plans”, “In the event it is unsafe to swim, each race will become a duathlon with the coinciding duathlon distance to start- Aquabikes would become just a bike. If it’s unsafe to ride, the race will become a swim and run. If it's unsafe to swim and ride, the race will become just a run. The race start may be delayed up to one hour if the weather is anticipated to clear up.”
