The 6th Dartford Bridge Children’s Triathlon will take place on the 21st June 2020.
Due to the size of the Children’s and Adult race we have decided to split the races and have them on different days.
The children’s race will be a week before now and start at 7am. Registration will open at 5.30am.
We feel that this will enable us to to put on a better event for the children.
We are hoping to have another pr race open water swimming session on Saturday the 6th or 13th June. This will be confirmed soon.
Entries are now live for the children’s race.

You should all have received a refund conformation e-mail. It will take a few days to show in your accounts. The online company will send me a total that I need to pay back into their account.
If you have not had a confirmation e-mail, please let me know (check your spam folder) I don’t think I have missed anyone but I was getting number drunk towards the end.
Stay safe and hopefully we will see you all in 2021.
Race update 08/04/2020
Sorry for the delay in sending out this massage but I have been waiting for the BTF south east region to get back to me. We were going to ask them if they wanted me to put the race back to August or September. As of today we have still not had a reply.
I have had a reply from the London region and they have cancelled this year’s series.
So we have decided to cancel this year’s race so everyone will now get a full race entry refund.
We have already paid out for parts of the race but we will cover that.
The online entry system we use will only let me refund you one at a time so it’s going to take me some time to do this. I will try and get it done by the weekend. It may take longer to show on your account as they need to ask for the money back from my bank account.
Hopefully this will all be over soon and life will get back to normal.
Please take care and we hope to see you all back in 2021

We are sorry to say that received the e-mail below from British Triathlon today telling us to cancel all events up to the end of June.
I will be sending out an e-mail to everyone soon giving you more information about a race refund.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

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.
