COVID-19 INFORMATION

COVID SAFETY PLAN

The safety of our community is our priority and we are always working (and adapting) our plans to ensure safe racing.

All our 2022 events will be run in line with government guidelines and, if required, we have plans in place to run them as socially distanced events.

We ran a very successful socially distanced event at Hever Castle in September 2020. If required, we have safety plans in place so that all events and all venues can be run as socially distanced events. If this is necessary, we keep our community informed and will be in touch with relevant athletes with detailed information.

Our decision making will be informed by announcements from and conversations with the following groups:

  • Government
  • Sporting governing bodies
  • Venues
  • Suppliers
  • Athletes

To plan and run socially distanced events, we are guided by the following five principals:

  • Education Communication
  • Density Reduction
  • Touch Point Reduction
  • Athlete Self-Reliance
  • Hygiene Emphasis

It is vital that as a community, we all take responsibility to keep each other safe whilst preparing and taking part our event weekends. We are grateful for your continued support and understanding.

Organiser's Description

Set on the southern border of the North York Moors, this stunning location and course has resulted in the event becoming increasingly popular, and again includes The Gauntlet half Iron distance. A physically challenging event with an open water swim in the beautiful Great Lake, a technical cycle through the Yorkshire and the Howardian Hills, followed by a run through the stunning Estate grounds with a sprint finish right in front of the main doors of the house. A picture postcard backdrop and a course with something for every level of triathlete.

Individual triathlon distance events from children's races to the middle distance Gauntlet, triathlon relay events from children's races to the Gauntlet, aquabike, aquathlon and duathlon events at sprint and standard distances, also swims and runs.

Live bands, food stalls, a retail area and camping at the castle make the weekend a festival of sporting achievements.

Health & Safety

We organised a hugely successful socially distanced event at Hever Castle in September 2020 for over 4000 participants and their supporters. This has given us, the Industry but most importantly our participants, the confidence to return to racing in 202!.

We want to reassure all participants that we’ll continue to work closely with Government, governing bodies, venues and suppliers to ensure that our 2021 events are run in accordance with current health and safety guidance.

Our increased health and safety measures cover 5 key principles of education: touch point reduction, density reduction, athlete self-reliance and enhanced hygiene.

Should we be required to put on a socially distanced event, participants will still get the full race experience but with individual rolling starts, 1 competitor every 10 seconds (sometimes greater), restricted time on site either side of your race and possible limit on spectators per athlete only.

We will prepare venue specific documents to send to all participants ahead of the event. These will include details on how to prepare pre-event, arrival timings and movements, swim, cycle, run, festival village and exit.
