Update for our events - 09/09/2020


UPDATE for UK Triathlon Events

Further to the recent news around new measures to control meeting socially, we felt it necessary to update you on the situation to date, surrounding our events.

Organised sports events fall into a different remit than social gatherings and, providing they comply with social distancing, will be exempt.

That said, we will be 'fine-tuning' our existing guidelines, including but not limited to, asking competitors not to bring unnecessary spectators, remaining at a 2 metre distance at all times where possible rather than the 1 metre plus rule and not exceeding groups of more than 6 at the event. These changes will not massively impact on how we intend to run the event and we will continue with our socially distanced swim starts at 15-30 second intervals.

Let us reassure you we are fully committed to putting on the next three events in 2020 and look forward to seeing you at one of those events soon. 😊
