Race update 24/03/2020

BRITISH TRIATHLON: EVENT ORGANISER GUIDANCE COVID-19
Based on the latest government instruction around Coronavirus/COVID-19, and in line with other national governing bodies, British Triathlon and the three Home Nations (Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland and Welsh Triathlon) and the Triathlon Trust have decided to extend the suspension of triathlon activity until at least 30 June.
We have not taken this decision lightly but in light of the rapidly changing situation, we feel it is essential to extend the period of suspension. The most recent instruction from the government is to stay at home for the coming weeks and even after that period, we expect to have a period of continued restriction of movement and activity. We therefore feel that it is our duty to take these steps to help protect the health and wellbeing of athletes, officials, coaches, volunteers and spectators and to alleviate the risk of an additional burden on the emergency services at a hugely testing time.
The government has been quite clear in its instruction for the public to stay at home with some defined exceptions. The exceptions include exercising once a day – to run, walk or cycle – and must be done alone or with members of your household.
We have been working with Sport England, particularly around the financial difficulties that event organisers such as yourselves might be facing. They have asked that anyone who has any financial difficulties email them at email@example.com so that they can log the issues and concerns of those involved in the delivery of our sport. We will of course, share with you any further information that we get in this area.
You might also find the information on the Sport and Recreation Alliance website helpful – click here to find out more:
We have updated the FAQs on our website – you can find these here

We appreciate that this is a very difficult time for everyone involved in our sport, but we do ask for your support as we navigate through this period of uncertainty. We are doing everything we can to support members, clubs, coaches, committees and academies as well as those businesses who run triathlon events.
As you will be aware, the British Triathlon offices are currently closed and our teams are working from home, so please bear with us if you need to contact us – we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Thank you for your continued patience and support.

There are three different distances plus a team relay to choose from: a super sprint, sprint and standard plus a relay option for the standard distance triathlon.
We are old fashioned so you can still send in an entry form to avoid paying the on line booking fee.
We have also changed the run course for the Sprint. It will now be 3 x 1.66k laps.
Previous competitors have enjoyed this event enormously with a number of triathlon clubs using our race as their Club Championships.
We can also offer a club discount for group bookings. Contact us for more information.
Car parking is free and a short stroll to registration and the start.
Sorry no refund will be given as this will be out of our control. In 10 years this has not been a problem.

In the event of us losing any part of the course we will turn the Triathlon into an alternative event. If we lose the road it will become an Aquathon. If we lose the lake it will become a Duathlon.
In the event of the race being cancelled due to bad weather you will receive a 50% refund
PLEASE NOTE: Swimming is forbidden in the lakes on The Bridge at any time other than for events or during authorised Open Water Swim training sessions. Any person found swimming in the lakes on The Bridge is committing an act of Trespass, will be asked to leave and will be barred from site and disqualified from all future events at The Bridge.
