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

The swim at Castle Howard, described by many triathletes as the ‘best open water swim ever completed’, will now be open to outdoor swimmers as an event in its own right. The swim only event provides the choice of three distances: 5km 2.5km and 1mile, and boasts a unique and stunning swim route in all the stunning castle lakes.

All swimmers will be provided with timing chips and the races categorised into wetsuits and non-wetsuits. Prizes will be awarded for the first place male and female competitors in each distance.
