We are delighted that swim, bike, run events and activity can resume in England.
British Triathlon has created detailed event permitting requirements to guide organisers and facilities in running activity within government guidelines and with social distancing and hygiene measures in place.
Event organisers in England can apply to British Triathlon for a permit and permitted events can take place from 25 July. Event organisers of all sizes will be required to demonstrate that they are able to deliver their event in a Covid-19 Secure manner.
From 18 July, clubs and coaches can organise activities for more than six people outdoors in England, provided they do so in a Covid-19 Secure manner. Comprehensive guidance is available on the website for clubs and coaches.
From 10 July, Scottish clubs and coaches can organise activities for up to 15 people from a total of 5 households. Different restrictions exist for children (under 18). Support and guidance for clubs and coaches in Scotland can be found here.
From 18 July, Welsh clubs and coaches can organise activities for up to 30 people so long as they do so in a Covid-19 Secure manner. Support and guidance for clubs and coaches in Wales can be found here.
Events in Scotland and Wales are not currently able to take place but both home nations continue to work with their respective governments to ensure a safe return to activity as soon as conditions allow.
Andy Salmon, Chief Executive of British Triathlon said: “I am delighted that we are able to resume swim, bike, run activity in England over the coming weeks and look forward to supporting clubs and event organisers to deliver safe and exciting events.
“We hope to see a similar relaxation of restrictions in Scotland and Wales in the near future.”
