We are committed to running our future events as safely as we can post-Covid 19.
Please see the British Triathlon website for full details of what this will mean to competitors. However we have prepared an executive summary that contains the key issues & changes to how we will run triathlons, duathlons & running races in the near future. We are pleased to say that the latest government changes (reducing groups to 6 people from Monday 14th September) have not affected triathlon and duathlons. See the Statement on the British Triathlon website
- All competitors will be required to read the Pre-Event screening questions. These will be sent out 24 hours before the event & competitors who answer yes to any of the questions will be asked to stay away.
- We will appoint a Covid-19 officer for each event who will work alongside the race director to ensure guidelines are followed.
- We will maintain social distancing throughout the event. That means maintaining 2 metres wherever possible & 1 metre plus mitigation only when absolutely necessary.
- Maximum Numbers – we will be restricting capacities for all our events to ensure we are able to maintain the Social Distancing outlined in Point 3
- We will maintain our engagement with stakeholders: local authorities, venue owners, water safety teams, police, first aid team & marshals & event team. We are ready to go ahead with our autumn events subject to confirmation from stakeholders.
- Events that were previously mass-start (eg sea swims, sea triathlons & duathlons) will now be started as a time trial with athletes starting individually at intervals set down in the race manual.
- We ask all competitors to provide their own water bottles for bike & run segments. We will make arrangements for our volunteers to top up water bottles where needed. Or in the event of very hot weather we will supply drinks in sealed containers for competitors to serve themselves.
- Volunteers will be provided with face masks and sanitiser in line with British Triathlon recommendations.
