Information around non-competitive events after lockdowns end

Why does it matter that pools are open again for results to be competitive?

Lockdown 1; 6 weeks after indoor swimming pools were given the go-ahead to re-open, British Triathlon will deem events "competitive" again. Lockdown 2; 4.5 weeks after indoor swimming pools were given the go-ahead to re-open, British Triathlon will deem events "competitive" again (lockdown 2 was shorter than lockdown 1). This is so athletes have a return to racing period. Many athletes have not had access to training water, have been working extra hours or, have had significant changes to their usual routines and lives. Therefore there will be a 6 week period where racing is not competitive and results will not be viable to be used to qualify for Age Group Championships so all athletes can get used to competing again and return to fitness.

When did pools re-open after lockdown 1?

  • Indoor swimming pools in England re-opened on the 25th July 2020, therefore the first date which races are deemed to be competitive is the 5th September 2020.
  • Indoor swimming pools in Wales are due to reopen on the 10th August 2020, therefore the first date which races are deemed to be competitive is the 21st September 2020.
