Triathlon to return to England
Triathlons can take place in England from 25th July, provided they follow strict guidelines say BTF
Following the news last week that grassroot sports can return to England, British Triathlon have produced a set of guidelines for clubs, coaches and event organisers to follow. These are designed to ensure each event is as Covid-secure as possible, and safe for participants.
From the 18th July English clubs and coaches can host events for more than six people, providing they follow correct procedures, while in Wales clubs and coaches can organise activities for up to 30 people.
Event organisers in England can apply to British Triathlon for a permit, and permitted events can take place from 25 July, providing they follow procedures.
In a statement British Triathlon CEO Andy Salmon 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.”
