Return to play

BRITISH TRIATHLON - RETurn to play

We are delighted that swim, bike, run events and activity can resume in England and Scotland. 

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 can apply for a British Triathlon permit and permitted events can take place from 25 July in England and 15 August in Scotland. Event organisers of all sizes will be required to demonstrate that they are able to deliver their event in a Covid-19 Secure manner.

Currently, and in line with Welsh Government Guidance, Welsh Triathlon can only permit events of up to 30 people including the delivery team.

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 with Scottish Government guidelines. 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.
