Adrian Cooper

Can't fault the event, well organised from registration to finish line. Swim start extremely well organised and felt confident with the social distancing. Marshall's all fab and supportive, thanks especially to the lady Marshall at the transition entrance didn't get her name never stopped smiling and encouraging all athletes 

 

Lucy Kirk

The race was excellently orgasnised and supervised by friendly and thorough marshalls. 100% recommend this event for beginners and experienced triathletes. 

 

Ciaran Talbot

Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Low key spectator wise because of the pandemic. COVID wise, it felt super safe. Distancing, hand sanitising and masks were all in play and respected by everyone. 

Support staff and competitors were very friendly and approachable. Logistically it was very straight forward, it was easy to see where you needed to go.

I'd thoroughly recommend to families and beginners.

UK Triathlon Race Day Social Distancing

All UK Triathlon events whether swimming pool or open water swims

Social Distancing
Can we please remind you it is each and every person's responsibility to social distance, wherever they are in this country. The same will apply at ALL UK Triathlon events.

Start Format
Instead of mass starts throughout the day for open water events, each competitor will start at 30 second intervals, giving everyone their own individual start time and space. We run this format in all our pool based triathlons and it works perfectly. Pool based events will also probably have slightly longer start intervals than usual, most likely 30 seconds between competitors.
Spectators
We will ask you not to unnecessarily bring spectators to the events to help make social distancing easier for everyone.
Registration
Only one competitor will be allowed to register at a time. The queue for registration will be separated by ground stakes to assure a minimum of 2 metre separation. We will provide a sanitising hand station which you must use before entering registration.
Transition (in & out)
Competitors will be sent to consecutive numbered cycle racks so to avoid racking cycles next to each other. There will be a 10 minute time limit for racking your cycle and the same for retrieving your cycle after the event.
Race Brief
Race brief will be available to watch online at www.uktriathlon.co.uk.
There will also be a rolling live race brief at the poolside or lakeside. As competitors will start every 30 seconds, this will prevent groups of people and a 2 metre distancing measure will be in operation.
Finish Line
When you have crossed the finish line, we ask you not to stay in that area for any longer than required. Drinks will be dispensed for you at the finish feed area, please move away as quickly as possible to allow other finishers through.
Results
We will not operate our results screen at the event. Provisional results will be online at www.uktriathlon.co.uk later the same day.
Prize Presentation
Presentations will take place throughout the day, please observe 2 metre social distancing if attending the presentation.
